Use [CTRL]+w to delete a single word on the command line

Tips: Linux/Unix world
Use [CTRL]+w to quickly delete a word (all the characters to the last whitespace) on the command line. E.g.:

rm /hom/myhome/bin/tool/misc/script.pl

Oops you meant /home/.... Instead of using the backspace to erase all the characters up until rm, you should do a [CTRL]+w to save some keystrokes.
