I use Ctl-right/left arrow to move to the next/previous word when editing the command line. These keys also work in gedit and alpine, but not in nano which only responds to Ctl-space/M-space. Is there a setting for nano to have it accept Ctl-right/left arrow as well?
Re: nano editor
I tried finding that myself. It doesn't look like you can change the keys for moving a word at a time in nano.

2.1.1 supports user-bindable keys
It looks like version 2.1.1 of nano supports user-rebindable keys:

I was on the site earlier and totally missed that! I'll definitely compile that later and check it out.
