Nice write up Glenn - For me this brought up a follow-up Q for you that might make for another good post...

If it was possible, do you think people would prefer that single-line terminal commands copied from webpages don’t include the linebreak?

(IE. would it be better that the command doesn't run immediately when posted into your terminal)

If so, how would you do it?

Interesting question, this might be a good #discuss topic.
I personally like to copy/paste without a linebreak, so I can always double check the command or edit/add things.

Your question "how would you do it?", do you mean as a dev that made the code block or as a user that copy/pasted the command?
