DefaultKeyBindings.dict file (~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBindings.dict) for Mac OS X, created by Brett Terpstra and based heavily on work done by Lri. See Lri's gists and website for more coding madness.

This documentation is generated automatically from the comments and commands in the DefaultKeyBinding.dict file. The script document_keybindings.rb is free for use, but it's specifically designed for use with my formatting in the bindings plist (i.e. it's a little finicky).

Grouped items begin with the groups shortcut (if exists), followed by a subgroup (if exists) followed by the keys specified.
