"Use Emacs-like shortcuts: Emacs-like shortcuts make use of the
Ctrl and Alt keys, and the big advantage of navigating and
manipulating text in a Bash prompt is that you won't have to move
your fingers away from the typing position (to access the arrow
keys, or the Home, Page Up and Page Down keys). Notice that most of
those work well inside manual pages too, or when using the Nano
editor, or the less and more pagers."
