Pasting things from the above FAQ section into "pico ~/.inputrc"
Nice pasting... eh..?
Well, after adding (for "insert-key"-paste)
to ~/.inputrc and restarting all of cygwin: It doesn't work.
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.
Who is the FAQ maintainer?
