Is there any way to delete a line of text?
For example, if my current line/command is something really long like.
> git log --graph --all --blah..uh oh i want to cancel and clear this line <cursor is here now>
There is a shortcut to this?
Usually I will press the ↓ key, and if my current line is a brand new one on the history, that will clear it. But if I'm going through my command history via the ↑ key and start editing or using those commands, ↓ will only change the prompt to the next newest command in history, so it doesn't work here unless I press ↓ multiple times.
You can use Ctrl + U to clear up to the beginning.
You can use Ctrl + W to delete just a word.
You can also use Ctrl + C to cancel.
If you want to keep the history, you can use Alt + Shift + # to make it a comment.
