Hi, I was trying out zsh due to it being the default/recommended shell on Mac OS X: binki@Nathans-Air ~ % zsh --version zsh 5.7.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin19.0) I checked the reslease notes for 5.8 and did not see anything obviously related to my issue. I was trying to write input to a line and move my cursor about using M-f and M-b and deleting chunks at a time with M-d. I found that these behave differently from Emacs and bash. When researching this, I came across https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/106380 . However, the bindings suggested there do not behave the same. Consider the following input text: a-b-c d-e-f If my cursor is positioned at ‘a’ and I press M-f, bash and Emacs will move the cursor to point to the first dash ‘-’ (dash) (i.e., to immediately after the ‘a’). zsh’s emacs-forward-word will instead position the cursor immediately after ‘c’. M-b mapped to emacs-backward-word and M-d mapped to kill-word suffer from the same issue where dashes and other punctuation(?) are incorrectly considered to be word characters. Since I am so used to the behavior of Emacs and bash, this divergent behavior of zsh for these keys is really disruptive. Is there a way to get Emacs/bash-style cursor movement for these bindings? Could an emacs-kill-word be added along with emacs-emacs-forward-word and emacs-emacs-backward-word which actually behave more like Emacs or something? Would such a patch be accepted? Is thre a way to get this behavior with bindings to a script? Please CC me on replies as I am not subscribed. Thanks! -- binki Don’t forget to check for missing or extraneous apostrophes!
