NAME

     Term::Complete - Perl word completion module

SYNOPSIS

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