If you have been playing around with bash for some time you must have changed the file .inputrc sometime. I have changed it several times mostly for Del key and auto-completion trick. However every time I change it I have to logout of bash for it to take effect. Here are two different ways to do the same without logging out of the shell.
- Keyboard shortcut : Ctrl+x followed by Ctrl+r
- Script : bind -f ~/.inputrc
Hope this helped you."\e[1~": beginning-of-line # home
