Command completion for EiffelStudio bashers

For some months, a command completion utility for SmartEiffel has been available. Now EiffelStudio users have a similar tool, thanks to Patrick Ruckstuhl.

Command completion works with the ec command-line compiler under the bash shell, and enables you to type in just the first few letters of options such as -quick_melt and -precompile.

Patrick's bash autocompletion script can be found in the EiffelStudio subversion repository.

Hmm - with the new command line parsing library, it might be possible to automagically generate scripts like this. Anybody interested such a feature?
