When starting to write a MySQL query, e.g.
describe myt and hitting TAB, MySQL autocomplete will list not just the table names starting with
mytable), but all fields/columns of each matching table. E.g.
This can easily result in
Display all 505 possibilities? (y or n), and makes the autocomplete less useful than it could be.
Is there a setting or a trick to let MySQL (or MariaDB) only show the table names, not the field names? Or in other words, to treat the dot in the same way that regular shell/bash autocomplete treats the directory separator?
