Until recently I used Bash. There, you can remove all the content of the line from where the cursor is to the beginning of the line by pressing Ctrl + U.
$ hola que tal estas ^ $ tal estas # Ctrl+U ^
And so indicates the Bash manual in 8.4.4 Killing And Yanking :
Kill backward from the cursor to the beginning of the current line.
However, I now use
zsh ( Oh My Zsh specifically) and this functionality has disappeared. Now when I press Ctrl + U the entire line is removed. If I do Ctrl + W words are eliminated in the following way:
$ hola que_tal estas ^ $ hola que_ estas # Ctrl+U ^ $ hola estas # Ctrl+U ^
Does anyone know what I should configure so that Ctrl + U re-removes everything from the cursor to the beginning of the line?
Apparently Ctrl + U in zsh fulfills the function
kill-whole-line by default, what you need is to do a
backward-kill-line , try adding this to your
bindkey \^U backward-kill-line
It is worth mentioning that the list of commands (or widgets) can be found in the zshzle
zshzle in the STANDARD WIDGETS section.
