BASH hotkeys

25/04/2012

For Editing on the command line you can’t beat bash. Hitting the up key to get a command you’ve previously run is a god send especially when you’ve got that really long multiple piped command. There are a few more things you can do with BASH here is a page with them on it.

My newest favourite is ctrl-r to allow you to search through the list of previous commands rather than have to go through them one by one. It replaces my old favourite of typing the start of a long directory name and then hitting tab to have it automatically completed.
