@xin, you can call perl from bash. bash is not part of coreutils. What about gawk?

@MartinVegter, yes, they are the default bindings and documented. See info --index-search=backward-kill-word bashref

comment Unable to write to a GPIO pin despite file permissions on /sys/class/gpio/gpio18/value
there is such a question somewhere. Solution would be sudo sh -c '....', sudo -s calls the user's shell which we don't know anything about anyway.

comment What is the name of the formatting output from man?
Note that \b on a terminal doesn't delete the character, it's just that in H\b_, _ replaces the H (it's _ that deletes H, not \b). Also note that there are Unicode underlining combining characters nowadays so another way to write an underlined H is to write a H followed by U+0332 like . (which my firefox doesn't render properly btw).

bash doesn't support storing binary data in its variables. You'll need a shell that does like zsh, or better use a programming language like perl.
