What does kbd_cmd_abbreviation do?

I can't seem to find any info on it, all that comes up is the "Ctrl+___" and the others like it commands.

Thanks in advance.

Speed Enhancing Configuration:

If typing is your game and you don't want to create mapkeys, use the keyboard to execute Menu Manager commands. Just type each command. The CONFIG.PRO option:

kbd_cmd_abbreviation on
will execute menu options by typing only the first, unique portion of the command. If you like this, read more in Help. (Note: Typing commands can interfere with mapkeys if you have them.)

Looks like a Pro|E hold-over if it only works with the menu manager.

Thanks Antonius.

Very coincidental because yesterday I was thinking, "It would be nice if the menu manager acted more like a right click menu does so you don't have to keep moving over to where is it."

Sounds like this is an answer to cut that travel time.
