Suggestion to format long cli commands in labs to make them more readable…:-)

I have seen this a few times in lectures.  The KMS Grants lecture has crazy long commands that are difficult to follow.  I would suggest that when the cli is used in labs that the line continuation option be used.  Just add a "" before every option "–" and start a new line.  This also makes the lab more readable.  One simple example is:

This: aws kms encrypt –plaintext "hello" –key-id –grant-tokens –profile dave

Becomes this:

aws kms encrypt

–plaintext "hello"



–profile dave

When the long key-id and grant-tokens text are added to this statement it’s MUCH easier to read.

idk about anyone else but I prefer the format it’s in
