Learning readline saves as much time as learning vim saves.

@musicmatze aka what do you use it for / where does it save the time?

@malte as long as you're in the commandline, it saves time typing and editing commands.

And readline is not only used by e.g. bash, but also by the python/ruby repl, for example! So you get a lot for a little investment!

@malte exactly.

Also ALT-f, ALT-b !

And Ctrl-x Ctrl-e

And, of course, Ctrl-x Ctrl-v 😄
