I am trying to create a bash-style auto completion in a simple

I saw http://docs.python.org/library/rlcompleter.html,
thinking is the way to go for my program to intercept the tab key.
Would anyone have thoughts on this?
I wish cmd or cmd2 had this functionality built-in.
It is built in. Check the cmd documentation for complete_* method of Cmd class.
Following is an example of it use for a command called "open":
def complete_open(self, text, line, begidx, endidx):
asmfiles = glob('%s/*.asm' % ASMDIR)
matches = 
for path in asmfiles:
fname = os.path.basename(path)
