Package description for 'bashcompletion'

Programmable completion for bash.

 Since v2.04, bash has allowed you to intelligently program and extend its
 standard completion behavior to achieve complex command lines with just a 
 few keystrokes. Imagine typing ssh [Tab] and being able to complete on 
 hosts from your ~/.ssh/known_hosts files. Or typing man 3 str [Tab] and 
 getting a list of all string handling functions in the UNIX manual. 
 mount system: [Tab] would complete on all exported file-systems from the 
 host called system, while make [Tab] would complete on all targets in 
 Makefile. This project was conceived to produce programmable completion 
 routines for the most common Linux/UNIX commands, reducing the amount of 
 typing sysadmins and programmers need to do on a daily basis.
