39 .Sh NAME
40 .Nm editrc
41 .Nd configuration file for editline library
42 .Sh SYNOPSIS
43 .Nm
44 .Sh DESCRIPTION
45 The
46 .Nm
47 file defines various settings to be used by the
48 .Xr editline 3
49 library.
50 .Pp
51 The format of each line is:
52 .Dl [prog:]command [arg [...]]
53 .Pp
54 .Ar command
55 is one of the
56 .Xr editline 3
57 builtin commands.
58 Refer to
59 .Sx BUILTIN COMMANDS
60 for more information.
61 .Pp
62 .Ar prog
63 is the program name string that a program defines when it calls
64 .Xr el_init 3
65 to setup
66 .Xr editline 3 ,
67 which is usually
68 .Va argv[0] .
69 .Ar command
70 will be executed for any program which matches
71 .Ar prog .
72 .Pp
73 .Ar prog
74 may also be a
75 .Xr regex 3
76 style
77 regular expression, in which case
78 .Ar command
79 will be executed for any program that matches the regular expression.
80 .Pp
81 If
82 .Ar prog
83 is absent,
84 .Ar command
85 is executed for all programs.
86 .Sh BUILTIN COMMANDS
87 The
88 .Nm editline
89 library has some builtin commands, which affect the way
90 that the line editing and history functions operate.
91 These are based on similar named builtins present in the
92 .Xr tcsh 1
93 shell.
94 .Pp
95 The following builtin commands are available:
96 .Bl -tag -width 4n
97 .It Ic bind Xo
98 .Op Fl a
99 .Op Fl e
100 .Op Fl k
101 .Op Fl l
102 .Op Fl r
103 .Op Fl s
104 .Op Fl v
105 .Op Ar key Op Ar command
106 .Xc
107 Without options, list all bound keys, and the editor command to which
108 each is bound.
109 If
110 .Ar key
111 is supplied, show the bindings for
112 .Ar key .
113 If
114 .Ar key command
115 is supplied, bind
116 .Ar command
117 to
118 .Ar key .
119 Options include:
120 .Bl -tag -width 4n
121 .It Fl e
122 Bind all keys to the standard GNU Emacs-like bindings.
123 .It Fl v
124 Bind all keys to the standard
125 .Xr vi 1 -like
126 bindings.
127 .It Fl a
128 List or change key bindings in the
129 .Xr vi 1
130 mode alternate (command mode) key map.
131 .It Fl k
132 .Ar key
133 is interpreted as a symbolic arrow key name, which may be one of
134 .Sq up ,
135 .Sq down ,
136 .Sq left
137 or
138 .Sq right .
139 .It Fl l
140 List all editor commands and a short description of each.
141 .It Fl r
142 Remove a key's binding.
143 .It Fl s
144 .Ar command
145 is taken as a literal string and treated as terminal input when
146 .Ar key
147 is typed.
148 Bound keys in
149 .Ar command
150 are themselves reinterpreted, and this continues for ten levels of
151 interpretation.
152 .El
153 .Pp
154 .Ar command
155 may be one of the commands documented in
156 .Sx "EDITOR COMMANDS"
157 below, or another key.
158 .Pp

163 .Sm off
164 .Sq No ^ Ar character
165 .Sm on
166 .Po
167 e.g.
168 .Sq ^A

194 .El
195 .Pp
196 .Sq \e
197 nullifies the special meaning of the following character,
198 if it has any, notably
199 .Sq \e
200 and
201 .Sq ^ .
202 .It Ic echotc Xo
203 .Op Fl sv

221 .Dq no
222 indicating that the terminal does or does not have that capability.
223 .Pp
