BASH – making tab completion case insensitive

This is very lazy, but comes in handy for example if your browsing a Windows mount with random uppercases in file/folder names.

Add:

make your tab completion case insensitive

To your $HOME/.inputrc file (create the file if it doesn’t exist).  Alternatively you can make this userwide by adding it to /etc/inputrc .

You might need to reset the terminal, but now you can enjoy case insensitive tabbed browsing.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
