File name completion in HP-UX

Since HP-UX using POSIX shell, the file name completion is different than Linux's.

To do a file name completion, simply press ESC and =
Example:
[ux]home/saya $ cd .s<ESC>=
1) .sh_history
2) .ssh/
[ux]home/saya $ cd .s


It will list down possible filename/directory available in the pwd. Note that a directory will have trailing char "/"

To find out which shell your using, simply type:
[ux]home/saya$ echo $SHELL
/sbin/sh
[ux]home/saya$


Pathname Shell
shBourne shell
cshC shell
tcshTC shell
kshKorn shell
bashBourne Again SHell
