I am using CSH inside SCREEN on a PUTTY terminal. When I have to repeatedly enter similar commands, I tend to press the up arrow or use the shell history to bring up the command at the prompt. However I realise that there is a switch right at the beginning of the command that I need to change.
How do I quickly move to the first character of the command
Nope!!! <HOME> does not work for me.
Instead I press Ctrl + x twice to toggle cursor position from the first character to the last character of the command.
I do not know if this shortcut is provide by CSH or by Screen or by Putty, but it does work for me right now.
