Embedded shell : cursor movement/history

Post by don » Mon Jan 16, 2017 12:00 am

Good day,

I do like the feature of the embedded command line right below the panels - use it a lot.

With the current set up, only typing goes there. Would it be possible to extend with the following:

- Arrows - to be able to move back and forth
- <Modifier> + Left/Right Arrows - to be able to jump to the beginning and end of the typed line
- <Modifier> + Up/Down Arrows - to be able to scroll through the command history?

How would NC distinguish between arrow strokes for file panels and for command line?

I hope to get into this feature somewhere in 1.2.x, it requires some quite nasty and obscure heuristics to implement, which might take a lot of time.
