  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
