|How is it that when you type "apt-get install (first few letters of a package)<tab>" when running bash under rxvt, it can complete a package name? How is that implemented? I have many people wondering how that works, as it is a very useful feature. Thank you in advance.|
Command line completion is part of the shell, not actually part of apt or rxvt. The shell, in this case, is Ash, provided by the busybox utility.
