The behavior I see happening is that when I type something partially and hit TAB, if there are multiple files/commands that match what I had typed in, only the first one is displayed. Further TAB hits result in other matches being shown. Instead, I want the auto-completion to fill till the first ambiguous character and then if I hit TAB again, display all possible choices (as in say Ubuntu terminal). This is what I have in my .inputrc:
set completion-ignore-case on set show-all-if-ambiguous on TAB: menu-complete
The show-all-if-ambiguous seems to be what I am looking for, but it doesn't seem to work for me.
I actually want the behavior that this member doesn't:
I like hearing the first BEEP (or stop) and then typing in some more characters to fix the ambiguity.
