http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to setup a bash completion, and have two problems For parameter one, I needed a completion for directories For parameter two, a fixed array for completion, I just don't know how to let bash make a selection, before I always used a perl script for complex ones. _some_func() { case $COMP_CWORD in 1) # default completion ? how ;; 2) COMPREPLY=( "go" "unbind" ) # I should be using a program to echo "go" and "unbind", # and let bash decide which one to complete , right ? # that's the only two possible parameters here (HowTos)
