Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Readline is the library that handles your Linux command-line
input (and input for some other applications).
"The various customizable options for it are set either
system-wide in /etc/inputrc or per-user in ~/.inputrc. Most of the
time the default settings will work perfectly well, but there are a
few you may wish to try out that will make slight changes to the
way that tab-completion behaves.
"Be sure to hit Ctrl-X, Ctrl-R after editing the file to re-read
it and use the changes you've made.
"Set completion-ignore-case on
ignores the case of the input line when tab-completing."
