aecomplete(1) command completion


aecomplete cmd-name incomplete-word previous-word


The aecomplete command is used to perform command completion for shells.

See bash(1) for more information about Bash command completion, and how this command is expected to be executed.

At present, this is the only shell supported. The code has been written to be extensible, should other shells have programmable completion by external programs.


The aecomplete command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aecomplete command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.


See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
