QUICK TIP #1 Uhm hey there! Welcome to Quick Tips! I promise this isn't some spin-off of an LTT segment. Let's get on with the tip already. Need a quick way to backspace a whole word? hold down [Ctrl] while pressing [Backspace]. Thank me later. ~brendantcc [emails] email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org

https://tilde.news/s/lwzd7q/gnu_readline_for_better_productivity_on see these readline keybinds. ctrl-backspace isn't going to work somewhere with readline enabled. you'll need ctrl-w.

Right, okay. Thanks Ben! :)

>>OP And if you put "set -o vi" into your .bashrc file, you can get Vi keybindings at the command prompt. Hit Esc to get into Control Mode, then you can h, l, b, w, $, and 0 to your heart's content.

>>5 nano works with readline shortcuts, which are also emacs shortcuts. Example, Ctrl-a takes to the beginning of the line.
