I have used readline for years and not known a thing about it. There is usually the .inputrc in the home directory, which users are supposed to be free to change.
I am hoping to find a way of writing system-wide keyboard macros, to use wherever I happen to be in Fedora.
The man page for readline (I guess that is part of the copious bash man page), gives instructions on how to create keyboard macros. For example,
Control-b: "something AT email.com"
is supposed to work. If I press Control-b, readline is supposed to substitute my email address. It doesn’t. It may be that I am making some tiny mistake in editing ~/.inputrc, which I first created by copying the /etc/inputrc file to it.
In any case, if “readline” won’t work, is there any other way to create global keyboard macros, which I would find to be terribly useful.
Thank you again and I hope to hear from somebody soon.
