Vim keybinding for ROOT in interactive mode

Dear expert,

In the bash shell, I can enable the vi mode for modify text using
set -o vi

I would like to ask if ROOT also support a vi mode for editing the command in the interactive mode.

Thank you.

Hi @LongHoa ,
the ROOT prompt does not have a vi editing mode. It’s not exactly the same, but what I typically do is editing a script in vim. From there you can e.g. run :!root -l -b -q % (or add a keybinding for this).

hi Enrico,

Though it’s not what I expect but it teaches me that vim can do more than just editing text. Thanks a lot!

Anyway, I just found out that ROOT prompt is kinda using emacs keybinding haha

Long Hoa.
