I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

reasons to avoid zsh auto-correction

[ #35238 ]

root@backup:/var/backup/mail# tar jcvf 200701.tar.bz2 200701   zsh: correct '200701.tar.bz2' to '200601.tar.bz2' [nyae]?

No. I do not want to back up this year's mail into last year's backup.

I imagine this could be fixed by updating the tar completion to not want an existing files when creating an archive. Heck, you might be able to tell it to suggest correcting c to A... but I'll stick to my current procedure, which is to grumble and swear when encountering this behavior.
