After $ complete -F _filedir_xspec john I can use tab completion here $ john --wordlist=~/test and it gets expanded to $ john --wordlist=/home/fd/test.txt This doesn't just work for john (/usr/bin/john), but also for ./john (in the run subdirectory of my user's local john installation.). To make this work permanently, I included the following line into my ~/.bashrc: complete -F _filedir_xspec john Should I dig into bash auto-completion even more, to support expanding --wo to --wordlist= and so on? What other john-specific auto-completion would be useful? (Doing this correctly for all possible cases will probably be hard. Jumbo supports an extended set of options. Different shells might have different auto-completion mechanisms. Some distributions might already provide auto-completion logic for john.) Frank
