As you know Bash readline implementation allows `smart' program specific
completion for things like program options or allowed arguments. Since
Emacs shell mode uses non-interactive Bash shell the readline
functionality is suppressed, and replaced with more less equivalent
comint interface. That is, more or less... I wish to have all this
features in Shell comint interface.
So the question is: anybody knows any project that includes this
I am tempted to start a project like this, maybe generate completion
stuff from shell scripts and maybe C files (and convert this to Emacs
What do you think about it?
