Tab completion for imread, imfinfo, and imwrite in R2009b

OK, I'm embarrassed that I didn't even know about this particular new feature in R2009b. Yesterday I was in another developer's office looking at his latest project. He was typing away in MATLAB when all of a sudden he did something that made me sit up and look closer at the screen. "Hey!" I said. "Do that again!"

He had pressed TAB while typing in the filename input argument to imread, and it automatically completed the filename!

Really, I had no idea they had done this.

Here's a screen snippet.

The functions imread, imfinfo, and imwrite all now support tab completion for filenames in your current working folder.
