Guys, can you please play nice? This is a Linux support forum, and nitpicking
about the intricacies of English should be reserved for <GENERAL>. And
keep personal animosities out of it all together.


Thanks.

Wow, Thanks for that, totally new for me. Do you have a link for a table or something similar with more of those useful keyboard shortcuts?

I've just googled this and found some more:
http://mally.stanford.edu/~sr/computing/more-unix.html
I know they're Unix commands, but the ones I just tested seemed to work.

Have found this one: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubunt...hat-linux-etc/
Sadly, not all of them work in zsh.

EDIT: And this one: http://mamchenkov.net/wordpress/2010...ard-shortcuts/
for Bash, csh, zsh and the Cisco shell.

The keybindings in bash are a function of the readline library, which the shell calls on for processing user input. Readline uses an emacs-style interface by default, but you can choose a vi-style interface instead, if you find it more comfortable.

keybindings can be added or modified in the shell with the bind built-in, or through readline's inputrc file. "bind -P" (or -p) will give you a list of all current keybindings.

See the READLINE section of the bash man page for details, including default bindings.

(Full disclosure: other than the general concept of it, I don't have much personal experience with readline, or how to modify it.)
