    Hi and welcome

    tab function? Do you mean bash tab completion?
    If yes, then just call bash.

    As for the "$", this is something different.
    It is the prompt and what is shown there is defined by the PS1 variable BASH(1) Manual Page

    Hi Irthori,

    thank you very much for the quickest answer on earth . I meant as you wrote "tab completion", but how can I call bash? can you write an example of what do I have to write to complete login command for login as cyrus user calling bash "su - cyrus ....... "?

    sorry for this simple questions but i am new in the linux world

    thanks a lot
