[This is of potential interest primarily to bash users and R package
developers (hence the posting to r-devel only). Others, feel free to ignore.]
I have been using bash's command completion features  for a while now, to
the point where I expect everything to just work when I hit TAB. Since there
was no bash completion for R (that I knew of), I took a stab at it myself
last summer. This was my first major effort in bash programming, so it's far
from perfect, but it mostly works. In case anyone's interested, the script is
which has more details on installation and use.
Any feedback/improvements appreciated.
