(this is no feature request...it is a cry for help instead :O) :O)
currently my zsh is configured to behave as follows:
I type in the first characters, which are common to a group of files
in the cwd and then press TAB.
Then all matches are displayed below the current cmd-line and the
first match is used to complete my input.
Instead I would like zsh to behave as follows:
Type in the first characters, TAB and all possibilites are displayed
below the current cmd-line without touching my typing (no full
completing to the first).
Furthermore I would like to have a completing for cmd-line inputs
like "*.png <TAB>".
And one last:
Suppose one is here:
And I want to copy a file from the cwd to
To achive this is would type
and then "cp" and copy'n' paste the output of the previous command
behind cp twice (adding the file in question after the first
Then I would position the cursor on the word "current", wipe it out,
type "b <TAB>" but nothing happens until I add an additional SPACE to
seperate the left from the right part of the string, which I have to
remove afterwards again.
I am sure, that the behaviour of zsh, which I like to have, can
easily be configured via some switched or so.
The problem I have to find the appropiate information in the manual
is: I dont know the keywords to search for, I even dont know how all
this is named...
I would be very happy if someone can point me to the according
passages of text.
( I am using zsh 4.2.5 on Linux 126.96.36.199 )
Thanks a lot fro any help or hint in advance!!! :)
Have a nice weekend!
PS: I dont no for sure, whether it was <TAB> or <TAB><TAB> to
acchieve the things I tried to explain in the above mail...so please
add any missing <TAB>.... :)
