Hi I often use the tab completion and it is very useful but in some case the list of options is truly enormous. It can take an hour (or more) for ddd to finish printing them all. In this case I think DDD should follow the example of bash and say over 10000 (or some reasonable upper limit) completions, are you sure you want to print them all? Or something like that.

I don't see how it useful to give me several hundred thousand completions options.

Thanks in advance,
Bijan (bijan@psq.com)
