Betreff: filename completion

6.3 How can I complete commands, file names, variable names and so on?

   Just press M-Tab.  Press M-Tab again to get a listbox if there are
   multiple possible completions.

M-Tab means Alt + Tab :) If your desktop or terminal catches Alt + Tab you can use Esc + Alt + Tab 

Esc? You mean pressing Esc as if it was a modifier key? That doesn't
work here, or I must have misunderstood something (I tried w/ Esc
'cause Alt+Tab is caught by my window manager).

Press Esc, then release the key, then press tab.

btw I really would liked an option to swap the meanings of Esc + Tab and
Tab. That would be less Norton Commander like but more Unix like...
