bash completion (PgUp/PgDwn)


I normaly use FC and Gentoo in different machines. I really find usefull that in gentoo, you can use PgUp and PgDwn keys to complete a full line (command) from the history, for example:

$ cp m
[press PgUp key and get...]
$ cp myfile myfile2

I was trying to arrange this in FC3, I installed bash-completion (rpm), but no luck... Does anybody know how to get this working?

Solution found...

Ok, I finally found the solution, I answer to myself so everybody can use it (believe me, once you start using advanced bash completion systems, your cannot stop using em).

Important! For Bash users only (dunno for other shells).

Edit your ~/.bashrc file, and just only add:

bind '"\e[5~":history-search-forward'
bind '"\e[6~":history-search-backward'
Note: '"\e[5~" is the PgUp key and '"\e[6~" PgDwn key.
