One of the parameters you have entered has a single quote, ‘'’, and that
starts a quoted string which can cross the end of the first line into
subsequent lines. The normal shell's prompt of ‘$’ changes to ‘>’ to
show this line is a continuation of the previous one.
$ echo foo
$ echo foo'bar
Remove the quoting behaviour of the single quote by prefixing it with a
backslash, ‘\’, which is an ‘escape hatch’ for proving a literal quote
despite its special meaning. This is known as ‘escaping’, e.g. ‘escape
the ' with a \’.
