Re: How do I disable the mode for using j-k keys to scroll through history?

OK, figured it out after some trial and error. Google was about worthless on this. I did:

bindkey -M vicmd -r ^C
bindkey ^X^V vi-cmd-mode

Why ^C works for the control key I have no idea. I always thought that was ctrl-c.
