  Command line Editing
  Bash has two command modes, one emacs-like and one vi-like.
  Emacs mode
  run 'set -o emacs' to enter this mode.  (It's the default.)
  up/down arrow goes to previous/next history line
  right/left arrows move right/left
  ctrl-a moves to beginning of line
  ctrl-e moves to end of line
  ctrl-w deletes previous word
  ctrl-d deletes char under the cursor
