Component: Autocomplete Version: 0.47
Keywords: autocomplete, usability Cc:

Description

Another feature I saw in Eclipse:
When one types $ or @ or % automatically the list of available variables shows up in and allows the user to select. If the user keeps writing the list gets shorter always fitting the available prefix.

  • Version changed from 0.34 to 0.47

The autocomplete-always function does this as soon as you type two chars from the actual variable name.

Please check if this is sufficient for you and close the ticket, if it is.

This enhancement request is different from autocomplete-always.

It would do the following kinds of autocompletion / offering of alternatives:

$ => show all available scalar, array, and hash variables
@ => show all available array variables
% => show all available hash variables
@{ => show all available scalar, array, and hash variables
%{ => show all available scalar, array, and hash variables
$a => show all available scalar, array, and hash variables starting with 'a'
@a => show all available array variables starting with 'a'
... etc.
