Hallo Norbert,

Hi all,

In my Bash shell (».bashrc«) I have »bind« a command to the »F1« key
   bind -x '"\eOP":"_bash_man"'        # F1 man <command>

The script »_bash_man« looks like (it is simplified only for test reasons)

   echo "${READLINE_LINE}"

I tried exactly that and it seems to work. I put only that one line in
a script,
assigned the F1 key with bind to it and it outputs just the string I typed
before when I hit F1 like intended. No problems with cursor movements,
backspace and any other command line editing.

I'm on Devuan ascii and run GNU bash, Version 4.4.12(1)-release


This reminds me of programs (ed, rcs, telnet etc.) which don't use readline and have less command line editing capabilities. Backspace should work, though.

Had something similar with vi a while back.
"set nocompatible
set backspace=indent,eol,start"

or something
in .vimrc
