under the latest macos
$ sw_vers ProductName: Mac OS X ProductVersion: 10.15.6 BuildVersion: 19G73
i am using the latest bash (installed via brew)
$ $SHELL --version GNU bash, version 5.0.18(1)-release (x86_64-apple-darwin19.5.0) Copyright (C) 2019 Free Software Foundation, Inc. License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later <http://gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html> This is free software; you are free to change and redistribute it. There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.
and bash is defined as the default shell (
chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash + reboot)
$ which $SHELL /usr/local/bin/bash $ cat /etc/shells | tail -n 1 /usr/local/bin/bash
to customize bash, i have
$ ls -l ~/.inputrc -rw------- 1 foo staff 1432 Jan 21 2020 /Users/foo/.inputrc
that holds the following
set completion-ignore-case on "\e[B": history-search-forward "\e[A": history-search-backward
i used to be able to reverse-search using case-insensitive, but now it stopped working.
even tried to run
set completion-ignore-case on and
bind 'set completion-ignore-case on' directly in the terminal but it did not solve my issue.
- is there a bug in the bash version that i am using?
- how can i tell whether bash honors
- how do you recommend to debug the issue?
