comment How can I suppress output only if the command succeeds?
If there's enough output that storing in memory is an issue, shouldn't you be writing it to a file anyway given that most terminal emulators have a limit on how far back they'll allow you to go (and plain terminals usually require piping to a pager)?

Ah, but it was an .inputrc issue after all. I forgot to put set before some variable assignments. Silly me.

There aren't any lines like that in either .bashrc or .inputrc.

Adding something like nano to .bash_history does allow it to show up in command history, too, if that helps at all.

Also, I can run a bash script containing those characters just fine, so it's not like shell as a whole is rejecting them), and sh also allows entry of those characters from the terminal (but not a bash subshell started from sh). I haven't made any changes to .profile/.bashrc and don't have .bash_profile or .bash_login, either.

@Gilles Yes, and I can also paste them in. This also works if I run a terminal program such as vim, etc.; it seems to be limited to the command line/shell itself.

comment Where does uname get its information from?
@user237251 how many instances of the word "Linux" occur in the kernel source in string contexts? If it's not that many, you could just examine the results of a textual search and see where that leads you.

comment What are the legitimate uses of the `touch` command?
@Geek By looking at the number and noting that the first part, 20131101, can be broken down into 2013-11-01, or November 1, 2013. You can then assume that the 0000 part indicates a specific time of day, in this case 00 hours, 00 minutes. Or you could just look at the man page for touch, which tells you exactly what the format is (see -t).
