I’m fascinated with shortcuts – I can’t understand why wouldn’t you want to learn them, cut the process and get the job done in a fast speed.
So, I was going like usually though my duties and had to dig a bit through one of our servers and got annoyed by some typing difficulties and I told myself enough is enough you have to do something about it.
Bash uses a library (a shared collection of routines that different programs can use) called Readline to implement command line editing. We have already seen some of this. We know, for example, that the arrow keys move the cursor, but there are many more features. Think of these as additional tools that we can employ in our work. It’s not important to learn all of them, but many of them are very useful. Pick and choose as desired.
