Ancient Unix based keyboard shortcuts

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/14

Somehow I’ve been doing Unix like work off and on for most of my life. So I know many ancient shell shortcuts (like Ctrl-E for end-of-line and Ctrl-A for start-of-line) by heart.

Many don’t, or even list shortcuts as if they are for the shell, but in fact aren’t.

So here are some links that distinguish between various kinds of keyboard shortcuts and give some insight in the history of these shortcuts (that go back into the 1970s, yes I’m that old).
