How do I enable path and filename completion in the PTC MKS Toolkit shell environments?


KornShell:
For VI editor mode (set -o vi), press ESC-\ to complete your path or filename. For emacs or gmacs mode (set -o emacs, set -o gmacs), press ESC-ESC to complete your path or filename.

In Toolkit 6.1 and above, you can also use the tab key for path name completion. Use the command set -o tabcomplete to enable this.

Bash:
By default, bash is in emacs mode and therefore, like mentioned above, ESC-ESC will complete your path or filename.

C Shell:
Press the escape character (the ESC key, or CTRL-[) to complete your path or filename.
