Well, a nice piece of awk would fit equally well here. But apart from
that, of course my point was to have rc go well with the GNU realine
library (tab-completion and that), and the above does not really fit
the bill. On the other hand, one of the nice things abot rc is that
it has a small memory footprint, and adding features would make it
worse in that respect. I think I'll leave without tilde expansion,
and continue to use rc mostly for scripting :-)

Thanks anyway, and keep up with the good work.

bye,
carlo
