Bug#126039: ITP: bash-completion -- bash programmable completion
> How is this different than the 'Programmable Completion Builtins'
> already described in the bash documentation?
I find it neat (from the URL provided):
Bash has offered many forms of completion since its inception, including path,
file, user, host and variable completion.
* Path-name completion
This type of completion occurs on the first token of the command line, allowing
you to complete on executable files. Together with file-name completion, it is
the most known and used type. * File-name completion
This allows you to complete on file and directory names at the second and
subsequent token position on the command line. * User-name completion
This allows you to complete on user names by prefixing the token with a ~
* Host-name completion
This allows you to complete on host names by prefixing the token with a @.
* Variable-name completion
This allows you to complete on variable names by prefixing the token with a $.
Programmable completion indefinitely extends the type of completion you can perform.
