[ltp] terminal bip

What you probably want to do is make bash give you a list of possible
options, rather than beeping. Here's how:
Add this to /etc/inputrc
# Show all if ambiguous.
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
then restart bash
The information about inputrc is somewhere inside 'info bash'.
Different distros do different things:
If you have a directory containing, say "foobar" and foobaz" and enter
"ls foo" [tab]
* Mandrake will give you a list of possible completions.
* Redhat/Debian will just beep, and if you press tab again, will list
the possible completions.
While I'm on the subject, installing 'bash-completion' is really
worthwhile - it makes the completion more intelligent.
