Re: ssh config "Include" and bash completion

Hello Hector,

It work for me:

$ grep "Include\|testing" /etc/ssh/ssh_config ; cat /etc/ssh/ssh.d/test
Include /etc/ssh/ssh.d/test
Host testing

$ ssh test<TAB> => testing
$ dpkg -l bash-completion
| Estado=No/Inst/ficheros-Conf/desempaqUetado/medio-conF/medio-inst(H)/espera-disparo(W)/pendienTe-disparo
|/ Err?=(ninguno)/requiere-Reinst (Estado,Err: mayúsc.=malo)
||/ Nombre                          Versión              Arquitectura
ii  bash-completion                 1:2.8-1              all
       programmable completion for the bash shell

At bash_completioni script:

$ grep Inclu /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion -A10
# This function look for the "Include" keyword in ssh config files and include
# them recursively adding each result to the config variable
    [[ $# -lt 1 ]] && echo "error: $FUNCNAME: missing mandatory argument CONFIG"
    local configfile i f
    local included=$( command sed -ne
"${configfile}" )
    for i in ${included[@]}; do
        # Check the origin of $configfile to complete relative
included paths on included
        # files according to ssh_config(5):
                # The Included file is processed to look for Included
files in itself
                _included_ssh_config_files $f
} # _included_ssh_config_files()
