Running `bashcompinit` in zsh to enable use of bash completion specifications gives "command not found"

+1
−0

I'd like to use the answers in this post while using zsh:

compgen -c # will list all the commands you could run.
compgen -a # will list all the aliases you could run.
compgen -b # will list all the built-ins you could run.
compgen -k # will list all the keywords you could run.
compgen -A function # will list all the functions you could run.
compgen -A function -abck # will list all the above in one go. 

The zsh docs state:

The function bashcompinit provides compatibility with bash’s programmable completion system. When run it will define the functions, compgen and complete which correspond to the bash builtins with the same names. It will then be possible to use completion specifications and functions written for bash.

but when I run bashcompinit I get command not found.
