Bash Keyboard shortcuts Custome Key Bindings


Example

With the bind command it is possible to define custom key bindings.

The next example bind an Alt + w to >/dev/null 2>&1:

bind '"\ew"':"\" >/dev/null 2>&1\""

If you want to execute the line immediately add \C-m (Enter) to it:

bind '"\ew"':"\" >/dev/null 2>&1\C-m\""
