21.2. Command editing

gdb reads its input commands via the readline interface. This gnu library provides consistent behavior for programs which provide a command line interface to the user. Advantages are gnu Emacs-style or vi-style inline editing of commands, csh-like history substitution, and a storage and recall of command history across debugging sessions.

You may control the behavior of command line editing in gdb with the command set.
