10.3: See all possible BSD commands in the Terminal
Authored by: feelgood on Nov 12, '03 11:36:41AM

You can get the same thing using tab completion (in bash at least). During typing, you can hit tab, and it will autocomplete what you are typing based on context. If there are mulltiple completions possible, it will just beep at you. You can then hit tab twice and it will show you the possible options. Hitting tab twice on a blank line will show you all available because it is trying to auto-complete what you haven't typed yet.

Fo those that didn't know about tab-completion, it is particularly helpful for navigating through dirs. Type /path/to/some/dir/ and then hit tab twice and you will get all of the files and dirs in that dir.
