Hotkeys for terminal advanced usage

Web Source:

the most useful and less known commands:

1) Ctrl+D = Log out from the current terminal. In X, this may log you out after a shuting down the emulator.
It is very useful if you have a lot of open terminals(with ssh connection to remote server) and you want to logout from them quickly(without typing 'exit' in each on them)

2) Ctrl+R = History search (Finds the last command matching the letters you type).
Previously I used "history | grep my_command", but this looks like more elegant.

3)Ctrl+L = Clears terminal output.
