I'm using homebrew's bash completion package on OSX, which is installed in /usr/local/etc/bash_completion. It's working fine, but there are many extensions for it which rely on various environment variables beginning with COMP_, such as COMP_LINE. These environment variables unfortunately aren't being exported into my bash environment, despite the fact that the proper files are being sourced. Here is the applicable area in my .bash_profile:
# bash completion if [ -f `brew --prefix`/etc/bash_completion ]; then . `brew --prefix`/etc/bash_completion . /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/git-completion.bash fi
Yet COMP_LINE isn't set, which is preventing other completion addons from working:
> env | grep COMP_LINE >
Any ideas why the environment variables aren't set? Thanks in advance for your time.
