#17 new enhancement

Partial-match commands

It would be nice if filo's interface would accept partial-match of commands, matching any entered command which is unambiguous. So 'bo<cr>' would run boot, 'con<cr>' would run configfile, and so forth. But e.g. 'co<cr>' would match both 'configfile' and 'color' and so not be accepted..

Isn't it safer to do tab completion than trying to guess what the user meant? See Issue #7

I don't think tab completion is any safer. This is not exactly a guess, more of a shortcut method.
