Skip forwards and backwards by words in the shell

In my opinion, this is worthy of its own hint, or at least to be incorporated into this one. But I suppose it will languish here at the bottom of this hint, unnoticed.

Make control cursor left and control cursor right skip forwards and backwards by words in the shell.

In Terminal, go to Window Settings, then Keyboard. For "control cursor left", press Escape, then press "b". It will show as

\033b
For "control cursor right", press Escape, then press "f". It will show as
\033f
Enjoy!

Needless to say, if you want to change this to the more Mac-like way of doing things, map the keys to "option cursor left" and "option cursor right". They aren't there by default, but you can create them.
