;;;
;;; Introduction
;;;---------------
;;;  
;;;     After you type a few characters, pressing the "complete" key inserts
;;; the rest of the word you are likely to type.  
;;;
;;; This watches all the words that you type and remembers them.  When 
;;; typing a new word, pressing "complete" (meta-return) "completes" the
;;; word by inserting the most recently used word that begins with the 
;;; same characters.  If you press meta-return repeatedly, it cycles
;;; through all the words it knows about.
;;;
;;;  If you like the completion then just continue typing, it is as if you
;;; entered the text by hand.  If you want the inserted extra characters 
;;; to go away, type control-w or delete.  More options are described below.
;;;
;;;  The guesses are made in the order of the most recently "used".  Typing
;;; in a word and then typing a separator character (such as a space) "uses" 
;;; the word.  So does moving a cursor over the word.  If no words are found, 
;;; it uses an extended version of the dabbrev style completion.
;;;
;;;   You automatically save the completions you use to a file between 
;;; sessions.  
;;;
;;;   Completion enables programmers to enter longer, more descriptive 
;;; variable names while typing fewer keystrokes than they normally would.
;;;
;;;
;;; Full documentation
;;;---------------------
;;;
;;;   A "word" is any string containing characters with either word or symbol 
;;; syntax.  [E.G. Any alphanumeric string with hypens, underscores, etc.]
;;; Unless you change the constants, you must type at least three characters
;;; for the word to be recognized.  Only words longer than 6 characters are
;;; saved.
;;;
;;;   When you load this file, completion will be on.  I suggest you use the
;;; compiled version (because it is noticibly faster).
;;;
;;;  M-X completion-mode toggles whether or not new words are added to the
;;; database by changing the value of *completep*.
;;;
;;;  SAVING/LOADING COMPLETIONS
;;;   Completions are automatically saved from one session to another
;;; (unless *save-completions-p* or *completep* is nil).
;;; Loading this file (or calling initialize-completions) causes EMACS
;;; to load a completions database for a saved completions file 
;;; (default: ~/.completions).  When you exit, EMACS saves a copy of the
;;; completions that you 
;;; often use.  When you next start, EMACS loads in the saved completion file.
;;;
;;;   The number of completions saved depends loosely on 
;;; *saved-completions-decay-factor*.  Completions that have never been 
;;; inserted via "complete" are not saved.  You are encouraged to experiment
;;; with different functions (see compute-completion-min-num-uses).
;;;
;;;   Some completions are permanent and are always saved out.  These 
;;; completions have their num-uses slot set to T.  Use 
;;; add-permanent-completion to do this
;;;
;;;   Completions are saved only if *completep* is T.  The number of old
;;; versions kept of the saved completions file is controlled by 
;;; *completion-file-versions-kept*.
;;;
;;; COMPLETE KEY OPTIONS
;;;   The complete function takes a numeric arguments.  
;;;  control-u :: leave the point at the beginning of the completion rather 
;;;               than the middle.
;;;  a number  :: rotate through the possible completions by that amount
;;;  `-'       :: same as -1 (insert previous completion)
;;;
;;; HOW THE DATABASE IS MAINTAINED
;;;  <write>
;;;
;;; UPDATING THE DATABASE MANUALLY
;;;   m-x kill-completion 
;;;     kills the completion at point.
;;;   m-x add-completion
;;;   m-x add-permanent-completion
;;;   
;;; UPDATING THE DATABASE FROM A SOURCE CODE FILE
;;;   m-x add-completions-from-buffer
;;;     Parses all the definition names from a C or LISP mode buffer and
;;;     adds them to the completion database.
;;;
;;;   m-x add-completions-from-lisp-file 
;;;     Parses all the definition names from a C or Lisp mode file and
;;;     adds them to the completion database.
;;;
;;; UPDATING THE DATABASE FROM A TAGS TABLE
;;;   m-x add-completions-from-tags-table
;;;     Adds completions from the current tags-table-buffer.
;;;
;;; HOW A COMPLETION IS FOUND
;;;  <write>
;;;
;;; STRING CASING
;;;   Completion is string case independent if case-fold-search has its 
;;;  normal default of T.  Also when the completion is inserted the case of the
;;;  entry is coerced appropriately.  
;;;  [E.G.  APP --> APPROPRIATELY     app --> appropriately  
;;;         App --> Appropriately]
;;;
;;; INITIALIZATION
;;;  The form `(initialize-completions)' initializes the completion system by 
;;; trying to load in the user's completions.  After the first cal, further 
;;; calls have no effect so one should be careful not to put the form in a 
;;; site's standard site-init file.

;;; Porting Notes
;;;-----------------------------------------------
;;;
;;;  Should run on 18.49, 18.52, and 19.0
;;;  Tested on vanilla version.
;;;  This requires the standard cl.el file.  It could easily rewritten to not 
;;; require it.  It defines remove which is not in cl.el.
;;;
;;;  FUNCTIONS BASHED
;;; The following functions are bashed but it is done carefully and should not
;;; cause problems ::
;;;   kill-region, next-line, previous-line, newline, newline-and-indent,
;;;   kill-emacs

;;;-----------------------------------------------
;;; To Do :: (anybody ?)
;;;-----------------------------------------------
;;;
;;;   Implement Lookup and keyboard interface in C
;;;   Add package prefix smarts (for Common Lisp)
;;;   Add autoprompting of possible completions after every keystroke (fast
;;;      terminals only !)
;;;   Add doc. to texinfo
;;;
;;;
;;;-----------------------------------------------
;;; Change Log:
;;;-----------------------------------------------
;;;    Sometime in '84 Brewster implemented a somewhat buggy version for 
;;; Symbolics LISPMs.
;;;    Jan. '85 Jim became enamored of the idea and implemented a faster, 
;;; more robust version.
;;;    With input from many users at TMC, (rose, craig, and gls come to mind),
;;; the current style of interface was developed. 
;;;    9/87, Jim and Brewster took terminals home.  Yuck.  After 
;;; complaining for a while Brewester implemented a subset of the current 
;;; LISPM version for GNU Emacs.  
;;;    8/88  After complaining for a while (and with sufficient 
;;; promised rewards), Jim reimplemented a version of GNU completion
;;; superior to that of the LISPM version.

;;;  - auto-save if haven't used for a 1/2 hour

;;;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
;;; "Symbol" parsing functions
;;;---------------------------------------------------------------------------
;;; The functions symbol-before-point, symbol-under-point, etc. quickly return
;;; an appropriate symbol string.  The strategy is to temporarily change
;;; the syntax table to enable fast symbol searching.  There are three classes
;;; of syntax in these "symbol" syntax tables ::
;;;
;;; syntax (?_) - "symbol" chars (e.g. alphanumerics)
;;; syntax (?w) - symbol chars to ignore at end of words (e.g. period).  
;;; syntax (? ) - everything else
;;;
;;; Thus by judicious use of scan-sexps and forward-word, we can get
;;; the word we want relatively fast and without consing.  
;;;
;;; Why do we need a separate category for "symbol chars to ignore at ends" ?
;;; For example, in LISP we want starting :'s trimmed 
;;; so keyword argument specifiers also define the keyword completion.  And,
;;; for example, in C we want `.' appearing in a structure ref. to
;;; be kept intact in order to store the whole structure ref.; however, if 
;;; it appears at the end of a symbol it should be discarded because it is
;;; probably used as a period.

;;; Here is the default completion syntax ::
;;; Symbol chars :: A-Z a-z 0-9 @ / \ * + ~ $ < > %
;;; Symbol chars to ignore at ends :: _ : . -
;;; Separator chars. :: <tab> <space> ! ^ & ( ) = ` | { } [ ] ; " ' #
;;;                     , ? <Everything else>

;;; Mode specific differences and notes ::
;;;  LISP diffs ->
;;;    Symbol chars :: ! & ? = ^
;;;
;;; C diffs ->
;;;   Separator chars :: + * / : %
;;;  A note on the hypen (`-').  Perhaps, the hypen should also be a separator
;;; char., however, we wanted to have completion symbols include pointer 
;;; references.  For example, "foo->bar" is a symbol as far as completion is
;;; concerned.
;;;
;;; FORTRAN diffs ->
;;;   Separator chars :: + - * / :
;;;
;;; Pathname diffs ->
;;;   Symbol chars :: .
;;;  Of course there is no pathname "mode" and in fact we have not implemented
;;; this table.  However, if there was such a mode, this is what it would look
;;; like.
