Subject: RFH: bash completion performance
Date: Fri, 2 Feb 2024 23:25:00 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20240202232500.M134686@dcvr> (raw)

I noticed bash completion for lei gets really slow with gigantic
candidate lists.  It's not lei's fault, rather bash being
inefficient when fed a gigantic list:

Chet (bash maintainer) gave a detailed reply here which
I haven't had time to act on:

I've already got a lot on my plate in public-inbox itself, so
hopefully another C hacker here can optimize it for us.

(I figure there's more people proficient with C reading this
inbox than there are with Perl, maybe I'm wrong...)
