      Description

      scala, like (I think all) other interactive intepreters (like Ruby's irb, Python, etc) support things like C-r for reverse command search, C-a & C-e for home/end, C-k for killing (cutting) a line to the end, C-f and C-b for moving, C-d for forward-delete-char, etc; however, a really annoying deviation from this is the lack of support for C-y (paste last killed item from kill ring) (and therefore probably Alt-y as well), and not only lack of support but unexpected behavior: C-y actually stops the interpreter just the same as C-z.

      (using C- to mean Ctrl-)
