+Cygwin bash completion
+======================
+
+Cygwin ``bash`` has extra patch that adds ``completion_strip_exe`` option::
+
+  shopt -s completion_strip_exe
+
+If you complete executable ``.exe`` suffix is stripped if any. That halps with ``bash-completion``
+because usually comletion defined for base name without ``.exe`` suffix, like::
+
+  complete -F _figlet figlet
+
+https://github.com/cygwinports/bash
+  7b. completion_strip_exe - using 'shopt -s completion_strip_exe'
+  makes completion strip .exe suffixes.
