This isn't a keyboard shorcut, but it is shell usage and would be helpful.

Type Bin and the command you want to run, and it will run that command exactly as it was run the last time ou ran it (Bin is visually expressed as an exclamation mark, ie. !). So, lets say you are searching for 'named' to see if it is running, you may run a complex shell command such as:

ps waux | grep named | grep -v grep

Then, later you run several more commands, perhaps editing some zone files, and you HUP named to refresh the zones in memory. You could go back through your history, or you could do:

!ps

And that would run `ps` exactly how it was ran last time it was used. Resulting in:

ps waux | grep named | grep -v grep
