Bash: the tab key and auto-completion
Posted on 2004-04-20
I'm trying to figure out how to type an actual tab character on the Bash command line.
Bash used TAB as they key for an auto-completion function.
When I'm trying to write sed scripts on the command-line, I cannot get a tab character typed into the script.
I'd be willing to learn how to turn off auto-completion, but it would be better to still have auto-completion and also be able to type the tab character.
