http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm sorry for asking another question of this type. This question is quite similar to this one, but I can't understand the solution. I also know this tutorial, but still I am unable to uderstand what I am doing wrong. I am trying to autocomplete the list of directories that are placed in /something/: $ ls /something/ One Other Three in a way that this will happen: $ hi [TAB] One Other Three $ hi O[TAB] One Other Only when the first word is hi and not only inside /something/. This is what I am doing in .profile: _codeComplete() { local cur=${COMP_WORDS[COMP_CWORD]} COM (HowTos)
