You specify, through quite a few techniques, the best way to tailor the checklist of attainable completions for the actual command. this can be uncomplicated, yet enough for lots of wishes. (See the access for entire. ) For extra flexibility, you should use entire -F funcname command. This tells Bash to name funcname to supply the checklist of completions for command. You write the funcname functionality. in the code for a -F functionality, the COMP* shell variables supply information regarding the present command line. COMPREPLY is an array into which the functionality locations the ultimate checklist crowning glory effects. additionally in the code for a -F functionality, you'll use the compgen command to generate an inventory of effects, corresponding to “usernames that commence with a” or “all set variables. ” The cause is that such effects will be used with an array project: … COMPREPLY=( $( compgen innovations arguments ) ) … Compspecs will be linked to both a whole pathname for a command or, typically, an unadorned command identify (/usr/bin/man as opposed to undeniable man). Completions are tried within the following order, according to the choices supplied to the whole command: If of completion is tried on an empty enter line, Bash applies the compspec given with whole -E. in a different way, it proceeds to your next step. Bash first identifies the command. If a pathname is used, Bash seems to work out if a compspec exists for the whole pathname. another way, it units the command identify to the final component to the pathname, and searches for a compspec for the command identify. If a compspec exists, Bash makes use of it. If no longer, Bash makes use of the “default” compspec given with whole -D. If there's none, then Bash falls again to the default integrated completions. Bash plays the motion indicated through the compspec to generate an inventory of attainable fits. Of this record, simply those who have the notice being accomplished as a prefix are used for the checklist of attainable completions. For the -d and -f ideas, the variable FIGNORE is used to clear out bad fits. Bash generates filenames as laid out in the -G alternative. GLOBIGNORE isn't really used to filter out the implications, yet FIGNORE is. Bash strategies the argument string supplied to -W. The string is divided utilizing the characters in $IFS. The ensuing record offers the applicants for of completion. this can be used to supply an inventory of techniques command accepts.
