Hi,

I am not a bash user, but if I try what you suggest, Richard, I see
the file as "this^Jis^Jone^Jfile" with tab completion (on one line).

P.S. What doesn't mean the $'foo\nbar' construction? In tcsh it says
"Illegal variable name." and in history it is recalled as $\'foa\nbar'
instead. I see that ksh also behave as bash with this $'foo\nbar'
entity.
