Shell completion for bash not working

Hi everyone,

I have followed the steps of the Mac documentation to install shell completion for bash and it looks like it doesn’t work.

Before following the steps I have checked that bash_completion.d/ was indeed located in /usr/local/etc/ and that $(brew --prefix) was equivalent to /usr/local/ but both code pieces to add to ~/.bash_profile haven’t had any effect (of course I tested by opening new tabs in my Terminal or by typing source ~/.bash_profile).

After reviewing the content of /usr/local/etc/ I think that I have found the root of the problem. There is a bash_completion.d/ folder but no file named bash_completion and find / -name "bash_completion"did not find it anywhere.

I use macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra.

Any help would be appreciated.
