LF Tip: Don't beep at me
From: Richard Neill

Noooo! There's a much better way - and then you'll find the beeps useful.
What you want is to have this line in /etc/inputrc
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
Then, the computer will show you the options if there are multiple possibilities, and beep at you only if there is an error. Combined with bash_completion, it is wonderful!

Can I tech my PC to play Jingle Bells instead?
No, not really.
Very useful tut.; Always hated the beeps...

Sometime the beep is a headache especially when you're wroking together with others.
Very helpful. Thanks
