Shell Mode

   The shell buffer uses Shell mode, which defines several special keys
attached to the `C-c' prefix.  They are chosen to resemble the usual
editing and job control characters present in shells that are not under
Emacs, except that you must type `C-c' first.  Here is a list of the
special key bindings of Shell mode:

     At end of buffer send line as input; otherwise, copy current line
     to end of buffer and send it (`send-shell-input').  When a line is
     copied, any text at the beginning of the line that matches the
     variable `shell-prompt-pattern' is left out; this variable's value
     should be a regexp string that matches the prompts that you use in
     your subshell.

`C-c C-d'
     Send end-of-file as input, probably causing the shell or its
     current subjob to finish (`shell-send-eof').

     If point is not at the end of the buffer, delete the next
     character just like most other modes.  If point is at the end of
     the buffer, send end-of-file as input, instead of generating an
     error as in other modes (`comint-delchar-or-maybe-eof').

`C-c C-u'
     Kill all text that has yet to be sent as input

`C-c C-w'
     Kill a word before point (`backward-kill-word').

`C-c C-c'
     Interrupt the shell or its current subjob if any

`C-c C-z'
     Stop the shell or its current subjob if any (`stop-shell-subjob').

`C-c C-\'
     Send quit signal to the shell or its current subjob if any

`C-c C-o'
     Delete last batch of output from shell (`kill-output-from-shell').

`C-c C-r'
     Scroll top of last batch of output to top of window

`C-c C-y'
     Copy the previous bunch of shell input and insert it into the
     buffer before point (`copy-last-shell-input').  No final newline
     is inserted, and the input copied is not resubmitted until you type

     Move backward through the input history.  Search for a matching
     command if you have typed the beginning of a command

     Move forward through the input history.  Useful when you are using
     M-p quickly and go past the desired command (`comint-next-input').

     Complete the file name preceding point (`comint-dynamic-complete').
