Blink matching parens in bash

May 6th, 2009
tech, shell, programming  [html]
I've just discovered a really great readline setting: "blink-matching-paren". It makes readline (and so bash) signal whether parens match, just as emacs does. When writing complex bash expressions on the command line it's really very helpful.
~/.inputrc:
set blink-matching-paren on
