Is there a way of using raw_input without leaving a sign in the readline history, so that it don't show when tab-completing?
You could make a function something like
import readline def raw_input_no_history(): input = raw_input() readline.remove_history_item(readline.get_current_history_length()-1) return input
and call that function instead of raw_input. You may not need the minus 1 dependent on where you call it from.
