Better Terminal Emulator Pro's Enhanced Shell provides a more powerful alternative to the shell built into Android. The Enhanced Shell uses the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almquist_shell Almquist Shell] to provide additional features such as command line editing, history, completion, and filename completion.
The Enhanced Shell also includes many additional Linux utilities which make working with your device through the command line more productive.
Command line editing and history is accessed by using the device's trackball or Direction Pad (DPAD). For devices without a DPAD or Trackball, or where it is more convenient to use the touch-screen, the Virtual Direction Pad may be used.
Use the Tab key to complete a partially entered command for filename. Press Tab twice to see a list of choices. Some phones with a full QWERTY keyboard, like the G1/ADP1 have a Tab key on the keyboard. Other phones with a 4-row keyboard like the Motorola Cliq or Verizon Droid do not. In addition, there is no Tab key on the Soft Keyboard. For these devices, one of the Programmable Shortcuts can be used to implement the Tab key. By default, the Focus Key is configured for this purpose.
