I was wondering if there is any common recipe for adding completion for commands with arguments, e.g. say my format is:
cmd [ -f | --file ] [ -o | --output ] [ -v | --verbose ]
if I do:
I'd like to generate:
-f --file -o --output -v --verbose
but if I do:
cmd -f foo -<TAB>
cmd --file foo -<TAB>
I'd like to see:
-o --output -v --verbose
I could cook something up, but I'm thinking this is a very common task, and wondering if it's been done already.
Hmm, I guess this is some kind of getopts style...
