Hi !

I was advised to file a bug report after I had posted my issue on StackOverflow


I defined the following alias in lldb : 

command alias bfn breakpoint set -n %1

Sadly, this alias does not allow Tab completion as the regular command does.

All the time gained in typing the command is lost typing whole identifiers that
are sometimes quite complex.

Nevertheless, buit-in aliases allow for completion so I assume there's a way to
achieve the same behaviour for user defined aliases.

Thanks for your time and the work you put in making great software.
