Hi! I have some terminal confusion/desires I'd like to clear up.
For the most part everywhere I search and read the terminal shortcuts ctrl+u ctrl+k ctrl+w etc are described as "deleting" characters and in the output of stty -a ^U is typically assigned to something called "kill" and then of course there's the common knowledge that (on terminal) ctrl+y does something referred to as "yanking"(?) that prints back the characters that were deleted.
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I often think of this behaviour more as "cutting and pasting", furthermore that's how I've been typically using these shortcuts recently. I often find myself then in the pickle of wanting to keep the last thing I cut or "deleted" in-tact while deleting a line.
So my short-form question would then be, how can I delete to the end of a line in terminal such as the behaviour received from ctrl+u and ctrl+k without disturbing the contents of ctrl+y? OR is there another cut/deletion method that stores it's own seperate content so I could then designate a cut/delete shortcut as my conceptual "delete-only" command? Also please I'm not interested in work arounds like "use the mouse right-click" I wanna do this in terminal-only, as in just my keyboard
