Copper’s Tips & Tricks #6: cd symlink autocomplete
I found myself questioning
everything why do I have to double tap
tab whenever I want to autocomplete a symlinked directory vs a normal directory. And then, that question urged me to google, and google I did, and found the answer I did, and here it is, for all of you everyday console questioners out there:
$ touch ~/.inputrc $ cat >> ~/.inputrc set mark-symlinked-directories on ^C
And from then on (on the server you added that to) any symlinked directories will not require you to double tap tab in order for the tab autocomplete to add the slash at the end.
