Re: Command substitution (backtick) and tab completion

You can get similar results:

`shell-expand-line (M-C-e)'
     Expand the line as the shell does.  This performs alias and
     history expansion as well as all of the shell word expansions
     (*note Shell Expansions::).

On my system that's Ctrl-Alt-e.
