perf tools: Fix the bash completion problem of 'perf --*'
The uses a predefined string '--help --version --exec-path --html-path --paginate --no-pager --perf-dir --work-tree --debugfs-dir' for the bash completion of 'perf --*', which has two problems: Problem 1: If the options of perf are changed (see handle_options() in perf.c), the has to be changed at the same time. If not, the bash completion of 'perf --*' and the options which perf really supports will be inconsistent. Problem 2: When typing another single character after 'perf --', e.g. 'h', and hit TAB key to get the bash completion of 'perf --h', the character 'h' disappears at once. This is not what we want, we wish the bash completion can return '--help --html-path' and then we can continue to choose one. To solve this problem, we add '--list-opts' to perf, which now supports 'perf --list-opts' directly, and its result can be used in bash completion now. Example: Before this patch: $ perf --h <-- hit TAB key after character 'h' $ perf -- <-- 'h' disappears and no required result After this patch: $ perf --h <-- hit TAB key after character 'h' --help --html-path <-- the required result Signed-off-by: Yunlong Song <> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <> Cc: Ingo Molnar <> Cc: Paul Mackerras <> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <> Cc: Wang Nan <> Link: Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <>
