;;; Commentary:

;; Extended completion for the Emacs minibuffer.
;;
;; The basic idea is that the command name or other completable text is
;; divided into words and each word is completed separately, so that
;; "M-x p-b" expands to "M-x print-buffer".  If the entry is ambiguous
;; each word is completed as much as possible and then the cursor is
;; left at the first position where typing another letter will resolve
;; the ambiguity.
;;
;; Word separators for this purpose are hyphen, space, and period.
;; These would most likely occur in command names, Info menu items,
;; and file names, respectively.  But all word separators are treated
;; alike at all times.
;;
;; This completion package replaces the old-style completer's key
;; bindings for TAB, SPC, RET, and `?'.  The old completer is still
;; available on the Meta versions of those keys.  If you set
;; PC-meta-flag to nil, the old completion keys will be left alone
;; and the partial completer will use the Meta versions of the keys.


;; Usage:  M-x partial-completion-mode.  During completable minibuffer entry,
;;
;;     TAB    means to do a partial completion;
;;     SPC    means to do a partial complete-word;
;;     RET    means to do a partial complete-and-exit;
;;     ?      means to do a partial completion-help.
;;
;; If you set PC-meta-flag to nil, then TAB, SPC, RET, and ? perform
;; original Emacs completions, and M-TAB etc. do partial completion.
;; To do this, put the command,
;;
;;       (setq PC-meta-flag nil)
;;
;; in your .emacs file.  To load partial completion automatically, put
;;
;;       (partial-completion-mode t)
;;
;; in your .emacs file, too.  Things will be faster if you byte-compile
;; this file when you install it.
;;
;; As an extra feature, in cases where RET would not normally
;; complete (such as `C-x b'), the M-RET key will always do a partial
;; complete-and-exit.  Thus `C-x b f.c RET' will select or create a
;; buffer called "f.c", but `C-x b f.c M-RET' will select the existing
;; buffer whose name matches that pattern (perhaps "filing.c").
;; (PC-meta-flag does not affect this behavior; M-RET used to be
;; undefined in this situation.)
;;
;; The regular M-TAB (lisp-complete-symbol) command also supports
;; partial completion in this package.

;; In addition, this package includes a feature for accessing include
;; files.  For example, `C-x C-f <sys/time.h> RET' reads the file
;; /usr/include/sys/time.h.  The variable PC-include-file-path is a
;; list of directories in which to search for include files.  Completion
;; is supported in include file names.


;;; Code:

(defgroup partial-completion nil
  "Partial Completion of items."
  :prefix "pc-"
  :group 'minibuffer
  :group 'convenience)

(defcustom PC-first-char 'find-file
  "Control how the first character of a string is to be interpreted.
If nil, the first character of a string is not taken literally if it is a word
delimiter, so that \".e\" matches \"*.e*\".
If t, the first character of a string is always taken literally even if it is a
word delimiter, so that \".e\" matches \".e*\".

  "Toggle Partial Completion mode.
With prefix ARG, turn Partial Completion mode on if ARG is positive.

When Partial Completion mode is enabled, TAB (or M-TAB if `PC-meta-flag' is
nil) is enhanced so that if some string is divided into words and each word is
delimited by a character in `PC-word-delimiters', partial words are completed
as much as possible and `*' characters are treated likewise in file names.

For example, M-x p-c-m expands to M-x partial-completion-mode since no other
command begins with that sequence of characters, and
\\[find-file] f_b.c TAB might complete to foo_bar.c if that file existed and no
other file in that directory begins with that sequence of characters.

Unless `PC-disable-includes' is non-nil, the `<...>' sequence is interpreted
specially in \\[find-file].  For example,
\\[find-file] <sys/time.h> RET finds the file `/usr/include/sys/time.h'.
See also the variable `PC-include-file-path'.

Partial Completion mode extends the meaning of `completion-auto-help' (which
see), so that if it is neither nil nor t, Emacs shows the `*Completions*'
buffer only on the second attempt to complete.  That is, if TAB finds nothing
to complete, the first TAB just says \"Next char not unique\" and the
second TAB brings up the `*Completions*' buffer."
