Have you got bash for AIX?...

Try to compile it in your platform (it's easy) and use the bash_completion.

bye

The default shell in AIX is the ksh which does not have a tab complete, however if you add:
set -o vi
to your .profile, you can then use:
Esc \
to auto-complete.

or you could use csh and just use:
Esc

Both shells are very common on AIX.

Bash ships with AIX on the Linux utilities CD. Install it and away you go.
