Ignoring .svn dirs when tab-completing in Bash

by on Jul.28, 2011, under Linux, System Administration

One thing that’s annoyed me for some time is .svn dirs interfering with smooth tab-completion in Bash when I’m in a Subversion checkout.

Finally annoyed me enough to do something about it – the solution is easy:


export FIGNORE=".svn"

I whacked the above in my .profile, and job done.
