Note that you can't just source ag.bashcomp in a command line. Add simlink to it to your bash-completion list or it will not be able to find have helper function.


Neat. I've never messed with bash completion stuff before, and I had no idea how it worked until now.

My only gripe is that make install doesn't set up bash completion. Add that and I think this'll be good to merge.


+1! I love it when tools add completion. Thanks!


Added installation to /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/ by make install. User probably will have to add symlink to it by hand.
RPM spec will install into %_sysconfdir/bash_completion.d/ (I hope %_sysconfdir == /etc, can't test this). Example was;a=blob;f=vzctl.spec

In Gentoo completion files are installed into /usr/share/bash-completion/ and then user can enable or disable them by eselect. In OpenSUSE they are installed directly to /etc/bash_completion.d/. Other distros may have their own rules.


Cool. I guess that about as good as it can be given the constraints of installing on different distros.

Nice work.
