version includes more than 140 completion patterns for programs such as Apt, Rync and XMMS, to reduce command line typing. The scripts provide keyboard shortcuts or, for example, can find hosts for the
SSH command. Bash has provided command completion since version 2.04.
Bash-Completion is licensed under GPLv2. Version 1.1 is available for download as a tarball from the project homepage. Developers also built a current Debian package in the git repository for distribution.
