In zsh when I type .. and Press Tab I would like it to expand to ../. At the moment, zsh looks for a directory with two periods in the name and expands to that (such as .emacs.d).

Which option affects this kind of behaviour?


From https://stackoverflow.com/questions/564648/zsh-tab-completion-for-cd, the magic command is:

zstyle ':completion:*' special-dirs true

(The link is about OS X, but I just got it to work on Ubuntu Linux 10.10 as well.)
