It is a Control-A (^A), which you can insert in a file using ^Q^A in Emacs. My
apologies for sending mail with a control character embedded in it, though.
This ought to work equally well, and uses only printable ascii:
(eval-after-load "comint" '(progn
(setq comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output 'others)
(define-key comint-mode-map [up] 'comint-previous-matching-input-from-input)
(define-key comint-mode-map [down] 'comint-next-matching-input-from-input)
(define-key comint-mode-map "\C-a" 'comint-bol-or-process-mark) )
Again, all glory goes to Martin Maechler <maechler at stat.math.ethz.ch>. As an
added note, I think Martin also has this line inside his structure:
(setq comint-scroll-show-maximum-output t)
which forces the prompt always to the bottom of the S window, but I don't like
it because I find it too jumpy.
