Bash completion after sudo or man

Published on 14-10-2009 in [ astuce, bash, commandline ]

While typing in a Bash shell, one may want to enable the [TAB] completion even when sudo or man was typed before the command. Just add the following lines to your ~/.bash_profile :

complete -cf sudo
complete -cf man

and you're done ! There are plenty of powerful features in "bash-completion" package, we'll see that later on this blog, too much work at the moment.
