Chapter 21. Shells and Shell Programming > Command-Line Manipulation

21.7. Command-Line Manipulation

tcsh offers a certain amount of functionality in manipulating the command line. Both shells offer word or command completion, and tcsh allows you to edit a command line.

21.7.1. Completion

tcsh provides word completion when the Tab key is hit. If the completion is ambiguous (i.e., more than one file matches the provided string), the shell completes as much as possible and beeps to notify you that the completion is not finished. You may request a list of possible completions with Control-D. tcsh also notifies you when a completion is finished by appending a space to complete filenames or commands and a / to complete directories.
