 tcsh: completing ssh commands
I'm experimenting with different ways to complete ssh commands. Until
recently, I used:

    complete ssh        'n/-l/u/' \
                        'N/-l/$machines/' \

For the "ssh -l <user> <machine>" which would complete on both the user
and the machine. I could also simply type "ssh <machine>" and complete
on that.

But stuff like sftp and scp use user@machine syntax instead. Since ssh
can do that too, I thought I'd try to add that in. I came up with this:

    complete ssh        'c/*@/$machines/' \

That's nifty because I can type "ssh", then complete on the username
*and* add the "@" after it, and then complete on the machine name after

But I haven't been able to make it work with either "ssh -l" or "ssh
<machine>", like I had before. Adding in rules to do that is either
ineffective, or it kills the user@machine completion.

So, can I have my cake and eat it too? Is there a way to at least
support "ssh user@machine" *and* "ssh machine"?

Thanks very much,
