      You got close to it at the end there, this is a CTRL-F character.

      On the command-line, to get a literal CTRL-F character, type CTRL-V followed by CTRL-F.

      If you have CTRL-V mapped to a paste function, you can try CTRL-Q followed by CTRL-F instead.

      Thanks Ben! That did the trick.
