NAME

       Term::Complete - Perl word completion module


SYNOPSIS

           $input = Complete('prompt_string', \@completion_list);

DESCRIPTION

       This routine provides word completion on the list of words in the array
       (or array ref).

       The tty driver is put into raw mode and restored using an operating
       system specific command, in UNIX-like environments "stty".

       The following command characters are defined:

       <tab>
           Attempts word completion.  Cannot be changed.

       ^D  Prints completion list.  Defined by $Term::Complete::complete.

       ^U  Erases the current input.  Defined by $Term::Complete::kill.

       <del>, <bs>
           Erases one character.  Defined by $Term::Complete::erase1 and
           $Term::Complete::erase2.


DIAGNOSTICS

       Bell sounds when word completion fails.


BUGS

       The completion character <tab> cannot be changed.
