bash key sequence


I have the following keymap set in bash:

dev1fe07 / # bind -p | grep beg
"\M-OH": beginning-of-line<-- What key sequence is that?
"\M-[H": beginning-of-line<-- What key sequence is that?

I know that M stands for the key Alt.

Thanks
Pedro

Those key bindings are hard-coded into the readline library, and represent common Home-key codes.

Cheers,

You could fetch the source from the GNU Readline homepage, but if you intend to edit anything, you should probably go with the source that comes with your distribution.

You run Slackware, no? In that case, recompiling readline shouldn't be a problem. Get the sources from source/l/readline/ in the Slackware distribution, and compile using the included SlackBuild script. This ensures you have it compiled with the same options, which preserves system reliability.

Cheers,
Odie
