In applications like Firefox Ctrl-Insert and Shift-Insert work like Ctrl-c and Ctrl-v (modifying the secondary clipboard), but in XTerm they do not work like Ctrl-Shift-c and Ctrl-Shift-vthe common Ctrl-Shift-c and Ctrl-Shift-v:

  1. Ctrl-Insert does not change the clipboards, and instead prints literally ;5~ on the current prompt.
  2. Shift-Insert pastes the primary clipboard instead of the secondary.

Can I fix this in .inputrc or otherwise? It would be nice to have two-stroke cross-platform cut and paste shortcuts everywhere.
