Re: How to add a 'non-escaped' tilde to the completion list

ok. I thought it works and the substitution now actually works as
intended, either with '-f' or '-Q'. But now I have another issue xD

When I hit my shortcut 'CTRL+v', the completion system adds a '~'
character to the command line instead of showing me the list of
available directories. When I hit 'CTRL+v' again, I get an other '~' and
the list. So now it looks like:

  cd ~~

and when I select a folder from the list, I have now '~~/folder2' on the
commandline. How do I get rid of the first tilde? The code now looks

  function _term_list(){
    local -a w

    for SESSION in $(pidof  zsh); do
      PA=$(readlink -n /proc/${SESSION}/cwd)

    compadd -af w

  zle -C term_list complete-word _generic
  bindkey "^v" term_list
  zstyle ':completion:term_list:*' completer _term_list

Thank you again.
