In tcsh, the TAB key will automatically
complete any name in the current
directory for any application (for pico,
cd, rm, chown)... It will even complete
paths from root.
Soo... If you want to open your .cshrc
from root you do..
"pico /ho"[TAB] -> "pico /home/"
Then continue with "yuo"[tab] -> "yourusername"
Then you get "pico /home/yourusername/"
And then type ".cs"[TAB] -> ".cshrc"
So in the end you get "pico /home/yourusername/.cshrc"
In a lot less stokes...
But say there are 2 users called
yourusername and yourothername.
Well, then the shell will beep, and if
you hit TAB again, you will get a listing
off all the files that start with "you".
You can then continue to the point where
the names differ, and then hit TAB.
This also works for commands.
