lambda-term-inputrc(5) Key bindings for lambda-term applications




This manual page describes the format of the ~/.lambda-term-inputrc file. This file is a text file which associates editing actions to key sequences. Comments start with a '#' character and empty lines are ignored.

Bindings are of the form:

        <key-sequence>: <actions>

Where <key-sequence> is a sequence of keys in the emacs format. For example Control+w is written "C-w", Control+Meta+x followed by "e" is written "C-M-x e". <actions> is a list of editing actions separeted by commas. The list of all available actions with a short description can be obtained by running the command lambda-term-actions(1) in a terminal.

Here is an example of bindings:

        C-w: kill-prev-word
        M-!: play-macro

In addition to letters and symbols the following keys can be used:

        * enter
        * escape
        * tab
        * up
        * down
        * left
        * right
        * f1
        * f2
        * f3
        * f4
        * f5
        * f6
        * f7
        * f8
        * f9
        * f10
        * f11
        * f12
        * next
        * prev
        * home
        * end
        * insert
        * delete
        * backspace

Note that lambda-term accept only ascii characters in the configuration file, to use other unicode character you must use the notation U+<code> where <code> is the code of the character in hexadecimal.

The file is divided in two section, the [edit] section and the [read-line] section. The first one is for key bindings that apply everyhere and the second for key bindings that apply only in read-line.





C-e: play-macro
