Subject: searching through "last words"
Date: Fri, 24 Jan 2020 19:09:16 +0100
Message-ID: <20200124180916.om3fvx6ipypr3kta@gmx.de> (raw)

I'd like to enhance Alt-. = insert-last-word a bit:

 - If at the beginning of a word, just work like insert-last-word
   (i.e. if pressed multiple times, replace the word by older last

 - If there is already something on the command line, work like
   above, but match only words that begin with the present string.

Example history:

 ... bar
 ... foo
 ... baz
 ... foobar

Then type

  $ ... <Alt-.>
  $ ... foobar<Alt-.>
  $ ... baz<Alt-.>
  $ ... bar<Alt-.>


  $ ... b<Alt-.>
  $ ... baz<Alt-.>
  $ ... bar<Alt-.>

Is there a simple way to do that, short of programming a new widget?
