Could it be <builtins> you are looking for?

Hit <tab> twice.

Hit tab twice in what? nautilus konqueror gnome-terminal? I am just curious. Personally don't use konq or nautilus much
(check things out once in a while when I see some tips and tricks posted here). I use kde instead of gnome and tend to
stick with xterm for CLI.

You can get some of the bash builtins by typing "help"

Otherwise, hitting tab twice shows all the commands you can use, but that's a pretty big list...

--edit

You can do it in any terminal/terminal emulator like konsole, gnome-terminal, or one of the consoles.

In terminal as long as you got Bash as your shell (probably behaves same with other shells).


Oops, icydog already said that :)

Oh yeah, I see now it's a bash thing. Pretty cool though
