On GNU readline

Related to this great article about rather unknown GNU readline features, I'd like to point everybody at my personal favorite readline hack (not by me): https://codeinthehole.com/tips/the-most-important-command-line-tip-incremental-history-searching-with-inputrc/

Regarding the article itself:

Although GNU readline maintains a kill ring (clipboard), which works much like Emacs’s kill ring, it’s not shared with your system’s clipboard, nor any other instances of GNU readline. It is, in effect, local to the process you’re running.

Would also be nice to have a solution for making this system wide.

Also learned about M-* inserting all completions.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
