Re: Command Completion and up-arrow

Hi Anthony -

I have incorporated this and it works fabulously.

Thanks very much.

You might also try

	bindkey "^N" history-beginning-search-forward
	bindkey "^P" history-beginning-search-backward

This searches on the complete string to the left of the cursor and not
just the first work on the command line.

Thanks very much Mikael.

The syntax required is:

        bindkey '^[[A' up-line-or-search
        bindkey '^[[B' down-line-or-search

        Hi -

        In tcsh, when I put the following lines in my .tcshrc:

              bindkey -k up history-search-backward
              bindkey -k down history-search-forward

        The effect is that when I type one or more characters and press up-arrow,
        tcsh attempts to match commands in my command history to the characters I
        have typed.

        Is there a way to do this in zsh?


        Do I need to write a completion function?


    Just use the same commands as you used in tcsh, but drop the -k and
    you have to write the literal code for "up" and "down", ie something
    like ^[[A and ^[[B.
