Confirmed here, Octave's Tab completion halts when a file name contains a minus sign (or other characters that are Octave operators).

Some work was done to handle a forward slash as a directory separator specifically, but not the rest of the operators that may make up a file name.

This is about Tab completion of file names, bug #53365 was about Up and Down arrow recalling previous history entries.

I have directories machine-learning-ex(i)_Complete/
Where i is 1,2,3,4.After coming to machine-learning-ex double tabbing is not working,i.e giving any suggestions,Neither after
'machine-learning-ex1_'.I think this is issue with readline library which doesn't produce suggestion after '-' between words.
But whatever,this is working in MATLAB.Autompletion available in every point.
