Generate the autocompletion script for bash

Generate the autocompletion script for the bash shell. This script depends on the 'bash-completion' package. If it is not installed already, you can install it via your OS's package manager. To load completions in your current shell session: $ source <(mongocli completion bash) To load completions for every new session, execute once: Linux: $ mongocli completion bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/mongocli MacOS: $ mongocli completion bash > /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/mongocli You will need to start a new shell for this setup to take effect.
