in reply to (OT) Bash Tabbing

I'm almost 100% sure you - I use zsh, and I know you can do it there. I think there's nothing here that's zsh specific though:
function hosts {set -A reply $($HOME/bin/gethosts)} compctl -K hosts -x 'c[-1,-l]' -u -- ping ssh telnet traceroute
This makes tab completion call my gethosts script whenever I try to tab as the first argument of ping, ssh, telent or traceroute. My gethosts script is pretty simple:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $HOME= $ENV{HOME}; open (HOSTS, "$HOME/.ssh/known_hosts") or exit; my @hosts = <HOSTS>; close HOSTS; foreach my $line (@hosts) { chomp($line); my ($name) = split /\s+/, $line, 2; my @names = split /,/, $name; foreach (@names) { print "$_ "; } }
So it returns an bash array (a list of space separated strings) of all the hostnames and ips in my .know_hosts file.
