completion-ignore-case problem with cygwin
Thu Sep 14 20:50:00 GMT 2006
I am using version 1.5.21-2 of cygwin with version 5.1-5 of readline.
I have the following lines in ~/.inputrc:
set completion-ignore-case on
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
set bell-style none
# to show all characters
set meta-flag on
set input-meta on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
and ~/.bashrc contains the following line:
shopt -s nocaseglob
In my home directory, I have a directory called Saved. I type s<TAB> (lower
case s followed by the TAB character), but I do NOT get any filename completion.
If I type S<TAB> (upper case S followed bgy the TAB character), I do get
It seems that even though I have set completion-ignore-case on, it remains off.
I enter the following command:
$ bind -V | grep completion
completion-ignore-case is set to `off'
disable-completion is set to `off'
page-completions is set to `on'
print-completions-horizontally is set to `off'
completion-query-items is set to `100'
Please notice that completion-ignore-case is set to off! I can execute the
following commands that seems to prove that I am unable to
turn on completion-ignore-case.
$ set completion-ignore-case on
$ bind -v | grep ignore-case
set completion-ignore-case off
Why am I unable to set completion-ignore-case? What am I doing wrong?
Thank you for your help.
