Case insensitive terminal

written on 2008-12-26

Case insensitivity for tabcompletion is something I have needed more often, this is how to do it.

Create or edit the file .inputrc and add the line:

set completion-ignore-case on

My coleague Jarno had the following tip originally as a comment.

You could also add the following to your .bashrc

bind 'set completion-ignore-case on'

(found the solution on ubuntu forums, )
