[Nano-devel] ^K and other functions in the prompt area

Hi all,

Reading the code, it appears that nano is able to handle ^K, and
several other functions, when in the prompt area -- for example
when asking for a filename -- but by default this binding is not
made.  I've sometimes missed not being able to simply kill what
I had typed there.  So, shouldn't this binding be made by default?
And the one's for NextWord and PrevWord too?

If you want to try, put this into your .nanorc:

bind ^K cut all
bind ^Space nextword all
bind M-Space prevword all
bind M-] findbracket all

Yes, nano can even find a matching bracket in a prompt line!
Which is way over the top, I think, but really, the function
is already there.  Is anyone using this?  Or could it be axed?
