ims completion bash

Generate the autocompletion script for bash


Generate the autocompletion script for the bash shell.

This script depends on the 'bash-completion' package. If it is not installed already, you can install it via your OS's package manager.

To load completions in your current shell session:

source <(ims completion bash)

To load completions for every new session, execute once:


ims completion bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/ims


ims completion bash > /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/ims

You will need to start a new shell for this setup to take effect.

ims completion bash


  -h, --help              help for bash
--no-descriptions disable completion descriptions

Options inherited from parent commands

--config string config file location, defaults to $HOME/.ims
