Pasting things from the above FAQ section into "pico ~/.inputrc"
Nice pasting... eh..?
Pasting into the console (right-click) and RXVT (middle-click) produced
the same results as pasting here (Eudora w/ CTRL-V). I don't know Pico,
but I gave it a try (running in a Cygwin console window) after copying
from Mozilla. A right-mouse paste there also had the expected effect.
Mozilla and IE copied styles, which I removed here. Perhaps that had
something to do with it.
I don't know what's up here, but I don't think there's anything wrong
with the FAQ.
Well, after adding (for "insert-key"-paste)
to ~/.inputrc and restarting all of cygwin: It doesn't work.
Here you have the wrong orientation of the square bracket character.
I also have
which does work in pico (internal handling?), but not in Bash...
(most things set as per default)
It is nice to have a FAQ, but when things described there doesn't work...
"\M-[2~": paste-from-clipboard # insert key
OTOH seems to work nicely (suggesttion by Randall Schulz, 2003-02-14)
this also remedies the first problem.
The "M-" is "meta-" and is just another way of notating an ESCAPE prefix.
Who is the FAQ maintainer?
