Double-tab complete

All, 


Last night I discovered double-tab complete. I thought it was pretty cool! 


Essentially, if you press the tab key twice, you will get a list of files and folders at the current location of the path. 


Are any of you familiar with this?

I use it daily....'cause I am lazy. BTW, when are we going to meet up so you can help me with ITT stuff? I start teaching my first class tonight.

=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ Yes. I have used this for several years and I have become utterly dependent on it. bash-completion in general is pretty great. Here are some relevant lines from my ~/.inputrc: set show-all-if-ambiguous on # Complete on single tab set completion-ignore-case on # Case-insensitive completion

And you also know that (for good or bad), tab completion can now be sensitive to the options for the particular command you're running? For instance: "tar xzvf abc" will show you the .tar.gz and .tgz files, but not the .zip or .bz2 files, starting with "abc", where "tar xjvf abc" will show you the .bz2 files. Which can be kind of annoying because sometimes I know it's a .tar.something and I start typing it and hit tab and I have to go back and do an ls or an echo to figure out what the real filename is. On the other hand, some packages are starting to ship with full tab completion for the options, which can be super cool. Dan
