iTerm: moving the cursor with your mouse.

Today I found myself having to edit a multiline curl command in iTerm, which led me to wonder if there was a faster way to move the text cursor around, for example, by using the mouse.

Luckily after some googling I found out that installing the nightly build of iTerm and enabling the shell integration takes care of the problem. Once you're done, all you have to do is alt+click and start editing!
