A guide to help set up Terminal
Authored by: gklinger on Aug 28, '06 10:25:28AM

BTW, as long as people are setting up an .inputrc they might think about adding the following:

"\e[5C": forward-word
"\e[5D": backward-word

That will let them use ctrl + left or right cursor to move through words at the command line. I fiind it to be a big time saver. While I'm at it, the following is good too:

set completion-ignore-case On

It turns on case insensitivity for tab-completition (for example, hitting d + tab finds your Document directory).

Getting your shell setup 'just right' takes time but it's well worth it in the time it will end up saving you.
