Not sure if this is a readline issue or an irb issue, so I'll venture the question here. When I run irb (in Mac OS X v10.3, with Ruby v1.8.2) and press the tab key, I get a print-out of the current directory. Is it possible to re-map the tab key in irb to insert a tab (or some # of spaces) at the prompt? Also, just curious, where does the name irb come from? I'm guessing "Interactive RuBy", but given the language's Japanese origin, I could be wrong. Thanks a bunch. -Rich

Nevermind on the first question, just found the solution in the list archives.
