This page contains a selection of Emacs keys that are useful for editing the command line. It is more of a memo to myself and not intended as a guide or anything. So just see it as notes that I share with whoever is interested.
Check if shell is using emacs or vi as command line editor:
Ctrl-B, Esc-B - Back letter, word Ctrl-F, Esc-F - Forward letter, word Ctrl-D, Esc-D - Delete letter, to end of word Ctrl-P - Previous line in history Ctrl-N - Next line in history Ctrl-Y - Yank (paste yanked item) Esc-. - Repeat last word for previous command Ctrl-/, Ctrl-_ - Undo Ctrl-R - Search back Ctrl-L - Clear screen (= clear cmd)
