Move cursor in OS X terminal

I've been using shortcuts to move around long commands:

  • option key + arrows to jump between words
  • ctrl + a to move to the beginning.

Tip on HN really rocks

OSX Terminal: hold option and click a position in the current line to move your cursor to that position. #yearslost
