I stumbled upon emacs bash completion project while working on a bug fix. This project adds the auto completion feature to emacs shell environment. This might prove useful later :)

The autocompletion feature of 'bash' leads to an easier user experience. We have already started working on adding this feature to gnuastro while invoked in 'bash'.

However, as Samaeh pointed out, using this feature in emacs can be ease up the scripting process. This means faster typing, less typos, errors, and worrying.

For a start, I found a link here that might be of help: https://github.com/szermatt/emacs-bash-completion

I can see that Mohammad has long wanted to implement a similar feature in emacs.

Also, it looks like there has been an intention for easing the process through using emacs since a long time ago.

With all that said, I guess this task can make gnuastro users' lives easier.
