Shell auto completion
Autocompletion is a feature provided by shells to complete any
part command from the console. For different shells these are:
Shell csh ksh bash
Single option completion Esc-Esc Esc-Esc Tab
Unresolved reference menu Ctrl-D Esc = Tab-Tab
Note bash has programmable auto completion which can be very handy.
