I attempted tab completion in the command line below:

pdir/nj/a:-d/s/(%inode[*] fpn) f:\ | ffind/vkmt"%@inode[tc0<tab>

The result was the display of all files, incl. directories in _CWD, PLACED
immediately to the right of the | piping symbol. Observed in V10 and V11.

Filename completion will not work on the right side of a pipe. You can
observe this in v9, v8, v7, v6, v5, v4, v3, and v2 as well.

I did not see any such warning in HELP Topic "filecomp.htm" . Is there any
hope that some future version will do it?
