Using the ncmpcpp MPD client, in the search function (F4) how can I add all the search results to the current playlist short of adding each item one-by-one?

For example, say I search for all music where genre == "instrumental". The help tells us to use space to add an item to the playlist, but what about the other 1,500 songs found?

I'd like to add all search results to the playlist.

The only thing I can think of is v to reverse selection (when nothing is selected this acts as select all), then A to add all selected items to playlist (select current playlist from the menu that pops up).

Although this is a 3-step process: Add / current playlist / to the end - it's better than not adding any, thanks! I'd like to see if there are any other solutions for choice. –  invert Aug 8 '11 at 10:44
