I'm sorry, I found what I was looking for a couple minutes after I sent this


 <http://lists.suckless.org/dwm/0901/7355.html>This patch will let you use
tab completion to select a file. Wow.

But, I also found this program called bashrun which is like dmenu but has a
whole bash shell in a little bar.

<http://bashrun.sourceforge.net/>Sorry about that. For some reason, one
spends hours looking for something, asks for help & then just finds it.
