skip along nicely in terminal.app?

I would like to use the ordinary 'option-arrow' and 'command-arrow' commands to move the input cursor.
How do I do that?
(I haven't changed the shell or anything like that.)

Yep terminal menu, window settings and choose keyboard.
I have the control left key set to escape b and control right set to escape f.
If you hit escape then f in the terminal, it jumps forward a word, use b for back. I prefer ctrl arrow. In the keyboard settings, this shows as \\033f. Use the delete button to delete stuff not the delete key itself.

'Command' seem to be unavailable as a modifier key, but the option-arrow-thing works great.

'command' is used by Apple's Terminal for "copy and paste, switching between applications, " etc. That is why it isn't available for rebinding in terminal.
