Topic: Computers bash

While reading LWN/linux.com I discovered that bash can do tab-completion on a remote host:

scp foo.txt remotehost:somed<tab>
goes off and makes a batch-mode ssh connection to remotehost, finds the possible completions and returns them to the partial command line. That's just freaky.

Oh, and bind '"\t":menu-complete' gets cyclic-completion instead of partial-completion, which is strange at first but feels like it might be faster when I get used to it.

back to main
