In some distros like Ubuntu this useful tool will be pre-installed. I read a tutorial on How To Forge for installing Bash-Completion in Debian. I found in my Debian install Bash-Completion was already installed. I for one hate typing commands and I use my history often. This reduces my mistakes. So when I learned about this little Bash add-on, I was all for it. To use it is simple. Just start a command and press tab once to complete the command and twice for more options. I'm sure there's plenty more so check the man pages for Bash-Completion.
