My incorrect terminology is probably confusing. I am not necessarily looking to map keys. What I would like to do is replicate the action achieved on the command line when using Esc-f with something that uses either the Ctrl or Alt key.
To be totally clear, when you use Esc-f on the command line the cursor moves 1 word forward. I would like to do the same using either Ctrl-f or Alt-f.
Thanks for your reply.
