In bash the
ctrl-r command is very useful, I type
ctrl-r whatever and it searchs my history for commands containing the word whatever. But if I type whatever and realize that I would like search that word and hit
ctrl-r nothing happens.
Is there a way hitting a key and having it behaving as if I had typed
ctrl-r whatever instead of
I have the following in my .inputrc
"\C-p": history-search-backward but this only works if the beginning of the line is the same.
