Re: [RFA] candidates for ambiguous command in upper case

Hard to figure out if someone uses it, I guess. This originally got
reported by one of our users as a minor inconsistancy, who also said
that he would be OK if gdb commands were case sensitive.
The patch that I'm suggesting is fairly simple, but my feeling is that
it would be just as easy to remove the feature.
I've tested the opposite: making the match case sensitive is a matter
of removing 4 characters in cli-decode.c. Not much consequences in the
testsuite. "handle sigq" still completes to "handle SIGQUIT".
So, what do we want to do?
1. Remove the feature?
2. Improve its consistency?
3. Keep things as is?
