"stty -echo" in Emacs Shell

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Tue, 06 Oct 2015 16:20:41 GMT

I finally found today how to eliminate an Emacs shell behavior that's been bothering me for seemingly ages. Sometimes it gets in a mode where it echoes every command. stty -echo turns that off. Yay! Thanks to Barry Margolin for this post in the Google group.

$ emacs
m-x shell
$ stty echo    # This happens somehow, causes bold lines below
$ pwd
$ echo foo
echo foo
$ stty -echo   # do this to fix
stty -echo
$ pwd
$ echo foo
