#752 new defect

Document and end-user-simplify the perltags and autocomplete featureset

Reported by: tsee Owned by:
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: Autocomplete Version: 0.95

Description

Currently, we support autocompletion via ctags-like files generated by the Perl::Tags module. You can set the "perltags" file in the preferences since recently. You can use all this to autocomplete class names, some variables and method calls. It's used to implement the advanced form of "jump-to-method-declaration".

Users won't use this unless we make it really easy. Specifically, we (probably) can't ship a default perltags file with Padre since it contains absolute file names.
