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.

see these readline keybinds.

ctrl-backspace isn't going to work somewhere with readline enabled.

you'll need ctrl-w.

Right, okay. Thanks Ben! :)

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.

but yeah most shells have a vi mode!

Does that work on nano?>>OP

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