When I type ctrl+r and then start typing I can see what commands in the history match which is great.
Now is there a way to search the history on commands I have already typed in the terminal?
For example if I type ctrl+r and then type ping I can cycle through servers I have pinged. But if I type "ping" first and then hit ctrl+r it ignores the "ping" I have already typed.
Some times I'll get half way though typing out a string of commands and then think "oh I already typed this it sure would be nice to search the history on what I have already typed instead of starting over".
Does this make sense what I am asking?
