2.14 Tips: Commands Auto Completion


The bash shell on Linux automatically supports command line auto-completion which is pretty handy. You can also manually download ml.bash from MLHub and place the file into ~/.local/share/bash-completion/completions/ for recent versions of bash, or into the system-wide location /etc/bash_completion.d/. The configure command automatically installs the file into the system-wide location. Be sure to restart the shell for the auto-completion to take effect.

Auto completion works for both MLHub commands and the names of MLHub packages.
