I've noticed that some console commands (like sudo or xargs) are using different kind of suggestions when I press Tab (they suggest programs instead of files).

Is there a way to mimic that kind of behavior for self written bash script?


This behaviour is called "Programmable Completion". You can customize it. See man bash for details.
