Shell Control & Escape Sequences for the Wilderness


Blog categories: 

Again, as a reminder for myself I am posting a table of shell control & escape sequences to navigate and use a misconfigured, non-configured shell or just for bragging purposes.

For sure this table is not comprehensive. Please drop a comment if there is a sequence, which needs to be added and will gladly add a line!

Sequence Description
Ctrl-A Beginning of line
Ctrl-E End of line
Ctrl-U Clear line
Ctrl-K Clear line from cursor
Ctrl-W Delete last word
Esc-D Delete next word
Ctrl-R Incremental history back search
Ctrl-G Cancel history search
