Is there any way to undo edition of command in terminal? E.g. I have a long string which I edited before running a command, and I want to undo some of those edits before pressing ENTER.


If you activate vi or emacs mode (set -o emacs or set -o vi ) you can use many advanced features like 'undo'. The default is emacs mode, so ctrl-_ should already do an undo.
