readline config

December 12, 2020

bash and a few other tools use readline library to implement interactive coommandline interface with history support, tab completion and text editing capabilities like copy/paste buffers and even macro commands.

Here is my tiny ~/.inputrc to enable a bit more completion color:

# cat ~/.inputrc
set colored-completion-prefix on
set page-completions off
set colored-stats on
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
set blink-matching-paren on

These all are minor visual and minor tab repeat changes.
