Well, I'm pretty new to zsh, but I may be able to field this one. % bindkey ^[. "^[." insert-last-word % So it looks like you just need to run something like: bindkey "." insert-last-word Note that the ^[ represents an actual escape character. So before you hit M-. you need to hit Ctrl-v so zsh inserts it literally. By the way, thanks for pointing out this feature! Oh, and while I'm posting anyway, is there a way to disable zsh's reports that mail has been read in a mailbox? I don't want to disable the reports of _new_ mail, just the ones where it says "the mail in xyz has been read". Hmm, looks like I managed to break my sig rotation script. Maybe I shouldn't have switched interactive-use shell, scripting shell, and editor at the same time. :) -- This block should never execute. Bug!
