Moving in ex command line is slow because common readline motions (like in bash) are not supported. Are there any improvements for this?
I often find myself with an ex command in the command line and the need to e.g. edit something at the very beginning. For instance, I may have entered ex mode and pressed ↑ to repeat the last ex command. I then have
in the command line, with
| being the cursor. In readline-enabled programms, I could use Ctrl-A or Alt- ← to quickly move to the beginning of the line, but in vim I seem to have to press the left arrow and move over individual characters.
Is there any configuration or are there any shortcuts which will speed up cursor motions?
