If you've been following this blog for a while, you might remember a post on the Systems Management Interface Tool (SMIT), better known as SMITTY to his friends. That post covered the frequently-asked question about the difference between smit and smitty. It also provided some handy SMIT Keyboard shortcuts.
Well, here are some new keyboard shortcuts that should be real time savers for you. They're not strictly new, as they're about 25 years old, but some of them were new to me, and they may be to you. Some of them are real gems, such as the shortcuts to do with editing fields and moving to the top or bottom of the selection screen.
I've grouped the shortcuts into: Cursor movement, Selecting and editing, and Menu navigation / Miscellaneous. This is from a short article I wrote for PowerITPro. The PowerITPro AIX Tips & Tricks are currently published on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month and you can subscribe to them here.
Here is a summary of the keyboard shortcuts. You can see the full article SMIT Keyboard Shortcuts on the PowerITPro web site.
