No. I'm in vi mode.

Is that dependant upon emacs mode?

Ah. Well, there's the problem, see? I sometimes buy whole loaves
of bread. I've got a bread knife, though I don't know if the result
of such manual labor counts as "sliced" bread. (^&
Then there's a brand of sweet bread that comes in round loaves and
I just tear hunks of that off and grunt at my neighbors...
Maybe the next time I change shells I will try to get along with
tab completion and anything similar. (I do use it in emacs, I
confess. I probably could get to like it in a shell, but at present
I'm more accustomed to being able to input TAB characters without
having to resort to ^V<tab>.)
