I have been working on a project that has a LOT of files with the same prefix, lets say it is “dumbPrefix”.
- … 57 more files with the same prefix …
now, on my command prompt I type
dum<tab>it completes to the first common part, so I get dumbPrefix- and then I get a list of matching, this is great because I can often type one more char and then tab complete, so I might just type
dum<tab>o<tab>to get dumbPrefix-other-very-long-names-and-stuff.
Kakoune on the other hand will turn
dum<tab> into the FIRST FULL MATCH (in this case dumbPrefix-additional-very-long-names-and-stuff) , which means to fix it, I have to remove all the bad parts of the match or tab-cycle to it. Both are not ideal.
