I _think_ that you're looking for for something like this?

If so, I do not know how to do that in bash & think that you'll need to
switch to tcsh instead.

$ sudo apt-get install tcsh

Others on this list are familiar with both & can point you to how to
change the shell enviroment etc. I don't know enough about it to comment
further... sorry.

These may be of help:
