@musicmatze what does it dooo?
@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!
@musicmatze ah, so it's the ctrl+a, ctrl+e, ctrl+w stuff?
Also ALT-f, ALT-b !
And Ctrl-x Ctrl-e
And, of course, Ctrl-x Ctrl-v 😄
@malte but I guess the last one is a bash-only one.
