AUTO-COMPLETION User Commands
The TAB keystroke on the Command Line has a particular utility. The
function is context-sensitive depending on the position in the command
and on the command itself.
When entering a command that may require a FILESPEC you may start typing
the file specification and hit the TAB key. The file specification will
be auto-completed with an existing matching file or folder. You may repeat
the TAB keystroke and the system will toggle through all matching names.
This allows you to locate a file or folder with minimal typing.
When entering a REGISTRY or HELP command (including aliases) the auto-
complete set is enhanced to include existing and system Registry keys.
This can reduce the amount of typing but also help remind you of the
proper key to use.
With the REGISTRY command if you use TAB immediately after the equals '='
sign the line will be pre-filled with the current value of the Registry
entry if any. An existing Registry Key can be quickly accessed and brought
up for editing using the TAB feature.
When using the TAB key at the beginning of the command line in starting
to type a command it will toggle through all of the valid matching
commands. This is further augmented by any matching commands from the
existing command history. This can be very helpful in quickly recalling
a recent command entry.
When in doubt hit TAB. This is THE Series 4 JNIOR feature that makes the
Series 3 JNIOR even more painful to use.
