Clear typed-in but not-yet-sent replies in iChat 3
Authored by: skully dazed on Sep 23, '05 10:31:16PM

While ctrl-k is good for deleting from the curser position to the end of line, why combine that with ctrl-a when there is a perfectly serviceable method that requires only one key combination, not two.

You can use ctrl-u to delete from the curser position to the beginning of the line. If you're in the middle of the line you can use ctrl-u and ctrl-k to delete the entire line, or first move your cursor to the end of the line with ctrl-e and then use ctrl-u.

Control-u doesn't do a "kill-whole-line" in iChat for me. Maybe you're thinking of how it commonly behaves in interactive shells (bash, tcsh, zsh)?
