prefix “00~” and suffix “01~” added when pasting into MacOS terminal

Been dealing with this issue as of late with my MacOS terminal (running MacOS Monterey version 12.4). Have no idea when it started, or why.

Looks something like this:

$ 00~stupidcopy01~

The easiest fix I have seen, that seems to do the trick is to use the “reset” command:

$ reset

It doesn’t hurt to kill your terminal instances.

Have no idea why it started, but I’m glad it’s gone. Was causing issues with passwords.

Thanks, hope it helps.
