      Another useful inputrc configuration to save strokes is:

      "\e[A": history-search-backward
      "\e[B": history-search-forward

      The above maps to your up and down arrow. This will filter lines that start with whatever you type. So if you’d say a thing like:

      > scp <press up arrow>

      you’ll go backwards in history only showing commands that start with scp.

      The bonus is that this also works in a mysql shell. Makes it nice to quickly filter through your select queries or use statements, etc.
