I looked at the FAQ for case insensitivity of bash, and tried the recommended
shopt -s nocaseglob
but it doesn't seem to do what I expected.
CD'ed to a directory containing the files "file1" and "File2", I was
hoping that typing "ls f<TAB>"
would result in expansion only up to the "e", and a further <TAB> would
present a list of the two files. It did not; instead, I got a fully expanded
"file1". Have I got something else wrong, or does the shopt option not do
what I was expecting. If not, is there another method of obtaining this
A related problem, I would like find to perform mixed case matches. I have many SDKS that I compile under, and some of the annoying ones have header files, etc, in upper case names. Searching for a missing header is more difficult because I have to search twice (if I remember). When I'm looking for objects that I may have built, it's even worse, because the files could be file.o, FILE.O or FILE.o.
