2.6 Custom Completers

Typically, a program that reads commands from the user has a way of disambiguating commands and data. If your program is one of these, then it can provide completion for commands, data, or both. The following sections describe how your program and Readline cooperate to provide this service.

2.6.1 How Completing Works  The logic used to do completion.
2.6.2 Completion Functions  Functions provided by Readline.
2.6.3 Completion Variables  Variables which control completion.
2.6.4 A Short Completion Example  An example of writing completer subroutines.
