quirk of line editor

When running binary octave 2.1.57 on Windows98 and in an
interactive mode doing programming step by step.  I
sometimes forget and instead of using the single arrow key
entries to move to the left to change an historical line I
use the ctrl arrow key in an attempt to jump to the first
character of a function, variable, whatever ONLY TO HAVE

I know it's my fault for asking for something that it can't
do, but after accumulating some hard fought for variables
and just ready to try that "one more test", it's really
irritating to bomb octave out of existance and have to
start all over.  Especially when so many editors accept
ctrl arrow as a valid way to leap to first characters. 

Is there anyway to have the line editor accept the ctrl
arrow key and jump to a first, or last, character?
