Use command completion to complete an unambiguous prefix

How to use the Vyatta NOS CLI command completion feature with an unambiguous prefix.

In this example, we complete the sh prefix. This prefix is unambiguous because it can only match with show.
At the operational mode prompt, type sh, and then press the Tab key.
Note: You can use either the Tab key or the ? key to trigger the command completion feature. For simplicity, we mention only the Tab key in our examples.
user@system:~$ sh<Tab>
The CLI completes the rest of this unambiguous prefix for you.
user@system:~$ show
