Problem this snippet solves:

The author got tired of not being able to TAB complete some b commands in v9, created a bash shell to help speed up the process

The following is example of tab completion:

[root@bigip1:Active] ~ # b v
version    virtual    vlan       vlangroup
[root@bigip1:Active] ~ # b virtual 
address  list     show     vs_http  vs_text
[root@bigip1:Active] ~ # b virtual vs_
vs_http  vs_text
[root@bigip1:Active] ~ # b virtual vs_http _

Create the file called redcomp.sh or whatever you would like to call it, in /etc/profile.d/ and execute the following:

chmod +755 redcomp.sh

this should then run the script when you log in.

Feel free to extend it and improve this code share

Note: This has been tested on v9.4.x branch
