Thanks. That doesn't seem to be the whole story though.
See the examples I gave
"line" is an external command. "eval" and "command" are builtin
STTY=-echo command line
f() line; STTY=-echo f
Do work, but not
STTY=-echo eval line
About zsh -c, it looks like it "works" as long as there's only one
zsh -c 'STTY=-echo line'
works (well, it doesn't seem to restore the settings afterwards)
zsh -c 'STTY=-echo line; exit'
It seems it never works in scripts even if they contain a single
command. With scripts source from interactive shells, they seem
to "work" but don't restore the tty settings.
line | STTY=-echo wc -c
STTY=-echo head -n1 /dev/tty < /dev/null
which don't "work" (even if they called stty, stty would fail
because stdin is not a terminal anyway, but that would still be
(STTY=-echo line; STTY=-echo line); line
the "-echo" is only applied to the 2nd and 3rd "line"
invocations (instead of 1st and 2nd).
And the issue when several are stacked mentioned before:
$ f() STTY=-onlcr line; STTY=-echo f; stty
speed 38400 baud; line = 0;
-brkint -imaxbel iutf8
-echo not applied, -onlcr not restored.
It would be worth documenting that it can only be used in
interactive shells and only for the simplest case of one simple
external command at the prompt, not in subshell, and without
