Control Keys When typing commands, the following may be helpful: ctrl-backspace - send alternate backspace character Useful if you've got things set wrong and get '^H' or '^?' instead of deleting. You can fix this more permanently via one of the following: $ stty erase ^H $ stty erase ^? ctrl-l - refresh your screen Helpful if you've scrolled past the end or something has corrupted your output ctrl-u - erase entire line ctrl-w - erase previous word
