#!/usr/bin/env python

# tab completion 
readline.parse_and_bind('tab: complete')

try:

except IOError:
    pass

del os, histfile, readline, rlcompleter

把上面代码保存为tab.py放置在当前系统全局环境变量下,可以使用print(sys.path)查看,如:/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages

    readline.parse_and_bind("bind ^I rl_complete")
else:
    readline.parse_and_bind("tab: complete")  # linux and python3 on mac
