On windows git bash, autocompleting does not work when using "./" syntax.

The autocomplete problem

When I work on Linux terminal, after "./", bash will complete the excutable file name.

But on the windows git bash terminal, the autocompleting feature will not work after "./".


The reason is, you can not make a script file "excutable" on git bash! For example, you can try to run chomd +x test.sh, and you will see that test.sh is still a non-excutable.


At the top of the script file, add this line:


This special line is called Shebang. It tells bash how to run this script file.

Git bash can recognize this line and activate autocompleting.
