NAME

      editrc - configuration file for editline library
 

SYNOPSIS

      editrc
 

DESCRIPTION

      The editrc file defines various settings to be used by the editline(3)
      library.
 
      The format of each line is:
            [prog:]command [arg [...]]
 
      command is one of the editline(3) builtin commands.  Refer to BUILTIN
      COMMANDS for more information.
 
      prog is the program name string that a program defines when it calls
      el_init(3) to set up editline(3), which is usually argv[0].  command will
      be executed for any program which matches prog.
 
      prog may also be a regex(3) style regular expression, in which case
      command will be executed for any program that matches the regular expres‐
      sion.
 
      If prog is absent, command is executed for all programs.
      The editline library has some builtin commands, which affect the way that
      the line editing and history functions operate.  These are based on simi‐
      lar named builtins present in the tcsh(1) shell.
 
      The following builtin commands are available:
 
      bind [-a] [-e] [-k] [-l] [-r] [-s] [-v] [key [command]]
            Without options, list all bound keys, and the editor command to
            which each is bound.  If key is supplied, show the bindings for
            key.  If key command is supplied, bind command to key.  Options
            include:
 
            -e    Bind all keys to the standard GNU Emacs-like bindings.
 
            -v    Bind all keys to the standard vi(1)-like bindings.
 
            -a    List or change key bindings in the vi(1) mode alternate (com‐
                  mand mode) key map.
 
            -k    key is interpreted as a symbolic arrow key name, which may be
                  one of ‘up’, ‘down’, ‘left’ or ‘right’.
 
            -l    List all editor commands and a short description of each.
 
            -r    Remove a key’s binding.
 
            -s    command is taken as a literal string and treated as terminal
                  input when key is typed.  Bound keys in command are them‐
                  selves reinterpreted, and this continues for ten levels of
                  interpretation.
 
            command may be one of the commands documented in EDITOR COMMANDS
            below, or another key.
 
            key and command can contain control characters of the form
            ‘^character’ (e.g.  ‘^A’), and the following backslashed escape
            sequences:
 
                  \a    Bell
                  \b    Backspace
                  \e    Escape
                  \f    Formfeed
                  \n    Newline
                  \r    Carriage return
                  \t    Horizontal tab
                  \v    Vertical tab
                  \nnn  The ASCII character corresponding to the octal number
                        nnn.
 
            ‘\’ nullifies the special meaning of the following character, if it
            has any, notably ‘\’ and ‘^’.
 
      echotc [-sv] arg ...
            Exercise terminal capabilities given in arg ....  If arg is ‘baud’,
            ‘cols’, ‘lines’, ‘rows’, ‘meta or’ ‘tabs’, the value of that capa‐
            bility is printed, with “yes” or “no” indicating that the terminal
            does or does not have that capability.
 
            -s returns an empty string for non-existent capabilities, rather
            than causing an error.  -v causes messages to be verbose.
 
      edit [on | off]
            Enable or disable the editline functionality in a program.
 
      history list | size n | unique n
            The list command lists all entries in the history.  The size com‐
            mand sets the history size to n entries.  The unique command con‐
            trols if history should keep duplicate entries.  If n is non zero,
            only keep unique history entries.  If n is zero, then keep all
            entries (the default).
 
      telltc
            List the values of all the terminal capabilities (see termcap(5)).
 
      settc cap val
            Set the terminal capability cap to val, as defined in termcap(5).
            No sanity checking is done.
 
      setty [-a] [-d] [-q] [-x] [+mode] [-mode] [mode] [char=c]
            Control which tty modes that editrc won’t allow the user to change.
            -d, -q or -x tells setty to act on the ‘edit’, ‘quote’ or ‘execute’
            set of tty modes respectively; defaulting to -x.
 
            Without other arguments, setty lists the modes in the chosen set
            which are fixed on (‘+mode’) or off (‘-mode’).  -a lists all tty
            modes in the chosen set regardless of the setting.  With +mode,
            -mode or mode, fixes mode on or off or removes control of mode in
            the chosen set.
 
            Setty can also be used to set tty characters to particular values
            using char=value.  If value is empty then the character is set to
            _POSIX_VDISABLE.
