I hit tab and it just works! (as for what i am trying to accomplish with the command itself, I am going to use
scp to "copy" to stdout, and feed that as a file to diff. This way I can see the exact changes I deploy to the server prior to running
I'm curious about what are the pieces that make this work so well. Is it something built into scp that was integrated with z shell? Or something else?
