option delete?
Authored by: Tiresias on Dec 21, '02 09:56:05PM

great observation but what use does it have? When is it ever necessary to add 5 characters at the begining of a command?

Personally, I\'d love to have something that deletes the last word. Anyone know how one would do that? it would be great if there was a command to delete the last directory in a path ie /Users/tiresias/Pictures/Mickey would delete Mickey. Or if there was one to delete to the last space like option delete does in many cocoa windows. I wouldn't mind if terminal deleted the whole directory path since It\'s a lot easier to go forward in directory navigation than backwards (such as /U[tab]t[tab]P[tab]M[tab]).

You can delete the last word by typing Control-W.
