Stop long commands wrapping around and over-writing itself in the Bash shell

shopt -s checkwinsize
add the command either in /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile so that this is available to your shell.
Sample Output
type a reasonably long command, such as something simple like this: echo "an exceedingly long command that's much longer than the current window size. Something that you know will wrap around". to see the over-write.

The Bash shell is a great tool, but one of its annoying features is that long commands wrap around and over-write themselves. This can be frustrating when trying to type out a long command or when trying to read the output of a long command. Thankfully, there is a way to stop this from happening. Now, I am going to know that what is healing trick which is most effective and less time taking.
