[PATCH] improved bash completion v5

From: Fabien COELHO <fabien_at_coelho.net>
Date: 2005-11-20 20:23:08 CET

Yet another submission. I like to complete what I start...

It addresses Julian comments on v4.

Difference with v4 :
  - SVN_ -> SVN_BASH_ env variable.
  - remove "ugly" completion messages, put simple beeps instead.
  - remove misinterpreted diff subcommand number of arguments.
  - fix number of arguments in swith without relocate option (was just a typo).
  - suggest revision completion also after -r, not only --revision.

Julian, if you don't like the two beeps/spaces, just remove the offending
line so that it defaults to ordinary file completion. I may look later to
your suggestion about removing the default completion from "complete" and
then add it back later when appropriate with "compgen".

[[[
Improve bash auto-completion for the 'svn' command:
  - there is a "real" parser to check for what is available
    and deduce what can be suggested further.
  - although it is not a good practice, mixed options and arguments
    is supported by the completion as it is by the svn command.
  - the completion works in the middle of a line.
  - property names are completed: see comments about issues related to handling
    ":" within property names although it is a word completion separator...
  - user-defined file and revision properties can be added with
    environment variables SVN_BASH_FILE_PROPS and SVN_BASH_REV_PROPS.
  - unknown properties are assumed to be simple file properties.
  - --revprop and --revision options are forced to revision properties
    as they are mandatory in this case.
  - argument values are suggested to some other options, eg directory names
    for --config-dir.
  - values suggested to some options can be extended with environment variables,
    so as to keep the default completion list short.

* tools/client-side/bash_completion
   add shell-intelligence to _svn completion function
