If you’re ever using a Shell in with Linux or for Windows the command prompt, you’ll quickly develop a hatred for typing full file paths.
For instance, on windows (Windows+R – cmd):
cd C:\Documents and Settings\Windows XP User\Application Data\
That’s just too much to type. Let’s not forget about the quotation marks issue for folders with spaces in their name.
You could just type this:
cd C:\Doc [tab]\Win[tab]\Appli[tab]
The blanks would be filled in and quotes would be added. Bliss. [click to enlarge]
This also works on every *NIX shell I’ve ever used.
