lambda-term-inputrc — Key bindings for lambda-term applications

Synopsis

~/.lambda-term-inputrc

Description

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.

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.

Here is an example of bindings:

       [read-line]
       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.
