comment How to make BASH try and autocomplete on Enter
Good point. I feel that although they aren't initially looking for this... this might be a good route to take. The OP may implement an answer that does auto-complete and presses [RETURN] and may then find that unintended commands get executed which can be hazardous. Think of delete link with no confirm, a well known problem. That experience may then lead the OP to 'want' to press return and may then like a short alias that will reduce their typing. Maybe! So I am giving information to try and help them going down that path.
