I would like to use an interactive Posix bash shell but the autocomplete feature doesn't work. When I type the Tab character it simply prints a tab. The tab completion works only when I'm in a non-Posix shell or in a Posix shell with Emacs input mode. I find Emacs input mode very awkward, as I am used to
vi input mode. Invoking bash with the
sh command doesn't help.
Here is my
