I am looking to create a keyboard shortcut for the Nano text editor to remove the word to the left of the cursor using the key combination Ctrl + Backspace.
Is the key backspace able to be included in a custom keyboard shortcut in a .nanorc file? Here is an example of what I am looking to do, which contains an invalid 'key' entry
bind ^Backspace cutwordleft main
Here is some additional information from the nanorc v5 man page, wherein it mentions the 'Shift' key, but not 'Backspace':
The format of key should be one of:
^X where X is a Latin letter, or one of several ASCII characters (@, ], , ^, _), or the word "Space". Example: ^C.
M-X where X is any ASCII character except [, or the word "Space". Example: M-8.
Sh-M-X where X is a Latin letter. Example: Sh-M-U. By default, each Meta+letter keystroke does the same as the corresponding Shift+Meta+letter. But when any Shift+Meta bind is made, that will no longer be the case, for all letters.
FN where N is a numeric value from 1 to 24. Example: F10. (Often, F13 to F24 can be typed as F1 to F12 with Shift.)
Ins or Del.
Shift-Ctrl-Delfor that purpose.
