Term::Complete

See the current Perl documentation for Term::Complete.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


Term::Complete - Perl word completion module



    $input = complete('prompt_string', \@completion_list);
    $input = complete('prompt_string', @completion_list);



This routine provides word completion on the list of words in the array (or array ref).

The tty driver is put into raw mode using the system command stty raw -echo and restored using stty -raw echo.

The following command characters are defined:

lttabgt

Attempts word completion. Cannot be changed.

^D

Prints completion list. Defined by $Term::Complete::complete.

^U

Erases the current input. Defined by $Term::Complete::kill.

ltdelgt, ltbsgt

Erases one character. Defined by $Term::Complete::erase1 and $Term::Complete::erase2.


DIAGNOSTICS

Bell sounds when word completion fails.


BUGS

The completion charater <tab> cannot be changed.
