Case Insensitive Tab Completion in Mac OSX Terminal

One of the things that keeps annoying me slighty is that by default tab completion in the terminal window is case sensitive.


It’s amazing how often I make that mistake … fortunately there is a way around this. Add the following line to your ~/.profile file:

  1. span class=”st0″>"set completion-ignore-case on"

Once you have done this, restart Terminal and try again. Now tab completion is case insensitive very nice 🙂
