TAB command

P: 1
How the tab command works in linux ?

i.e. it will complete the auto completion of the path by pressing only min. letters present in the path.

Where is the program for that in linux ?

Tab isn't really a command, per se, but instead is a feature of the shell you are using. You are probably using Bash if tab-complete is working. You will find that in shells like korn shell (ksh), tab complete does not exist.
