    You forgot about “Control+J” when you have written a command, i.e:

    ~# echo "lolo" 

    Pressing Ctrl + J will execute the command, same as Enter.

    It is wrong!

    • !* – displays the last word of the previous command.
    • !*:p – displays the last word that !* would substitute.
    • First command execute all arguments of the previous command.
    • Second command displays all arguments of the previous command.
    • !^ – execute the first argument of the previous command.

    CTRL+U can be used in place of CTRL+X+BACKSPACE.

    I love your posts so much!

    Because I love what you do guys, I thought I should point out when I see something that seems to be wrong.

    I think there is a typo regarding the shortcut: CTRL + S. You have used it twice throughout your post. First time was as a shortcut to pause all output to console. Second time as forward search.
