comment How do I make bash do vim-like tab completion for file names?
@ubiquibacon: Generally speaking, in a terminal there's no difference between Tab and Shift + Tab (or other shifted vs. non-shifted control characters). However, you can use another keystroke to do the reverse stepping. bind '"\C-q" "\e-\C-i"' will cause Ctrl + Q to do this (or add "\C-q" "\e-\C-i" to your ~/.inputrc. You may need to add stty -ixon to your ~/.bashrc file to enable Ctrl + Q (and Ctrl + S). The \e- (Escape minus) is what reverses the direction.

That doesn't give the parent PID which is what the OP asked for.
