With readline emacs keybindings, I'm aware that I can search forward or backward a character using ctrl+] and ctrl+alt+], respectively. I'm wondering if there's a way to repeat the last such searched character--just like Vim's , and ; keys.

I'm aware that I can prefix the search commands with a count (like, alt+3) beforehand; I'm also aware that I can do , and ; using Vim keybindings. But, as the title, I'm specifically looking for repeating the last searched key using emacs keybinding.
