Only bash is supported. I imagine zsh could be supported, but if someone is
keen to help out, then https://redmine.gromacs.org/issues/1410 would be a
great place to talk about it!

> Dear gromacs users,

> When I write for example:
> `gmx editconf'

> `gmx ediconf -f',
> when I press tab, another `-' is added and again I get offered all the
> options. In bash, instead, completion suggests possible filenames that
> match the option.
> Why is that? Can it be fixed and, if yes, how?
