Stifle the bell

If you use tab completion a lot, you may get tired of hearing the system beep go off all the time, rattling workmates who are trying to get something done in the next cubicle. To put the “bell” to sleep, create a file in home called .inputrc, containing the line:

set bell-style none


source .inputrc to read its contents into memory, and get your work done in quiet.
