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.

Is there a way to do this in zsh? yes Do I need to write a completion function? no 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.
