My Linux account in a remote machine comes with the following pre-defined
"\e[1~": beginning-of-line "\e[4~": end-of-line “\e[5~”: history-search-backward “\e[6~”: history-search-forward "\e[3~": delete-char "\e[2~": quoted-insert "\e[5C": forward-word "\e[5D": backward-word "\e\e[C": forward-word "\e\e[D": backward-word set completion-ignore-case on set bell-style visible set expand-tilde on set convert-meta off set input-meta on set output-meta on set show-all-if-ambiguous on set visible-stats on
I am reading the GNU bash documentation on the topic, but I haven't been able to find a section explaining what the character sequences
\e\e[D, etc. mean.
I think I read somewhere that
\e means the
meta character (which I think is
Alt in my keyboard), but don't understand what the other control characters
5D etc. mean.
Anybody knows of a good reference on the topic?
