Shell History Copying

`C-c C-p'
     Move point to the previous prompt (`comint-previous-prompt').

`C-c C-n'
     Move point to the following prompt (`comint-next-prompt').

`C-c RET'
     Copy the input command which point is in, inserting the copy at
     the end of the buffer (`comint-copy-old-input').  This is useful
     if you move point back to a previous command.  After you copy the
     command, you can submit the copy as input with RET.  If you wish,
     you can edit the copy before resubmitting it.

   Moving to a previous input and then copying it with `C-c RET'
produces the same results--the same buffer contents--that you would get
by using `M-p' enough times to fetch that previous input from the
history list.  However, `C-c RET' copies the text from the buffer,
which can be different from what is in the history list (if you edit
the input in the buffer after it has been sent).
