Thanks for your help,

Yes, readline is found during configure. In fact, readline does work, but only for internal octave functions and variables, and never for directory and filename completions. I am hoping to find a switch or configuration option that activates directory and filename completions.

Thanks again.

Does anyone know of a way to restore tab completion for filenames in octave 2.1.48.

Make sure libreadline is found when you run configure.  Look at the summary
table produced by configure before you call make -- IIRC it'll tell you
whether it found it or not.

Hth,  Dirk
