Bash::Completion - Extensible system to provide bash completion
## For end users, in your .bashrc:
## Now install all the Bash::Completion::Plugins:: that you need
## For plugin writters, see Bash::Completion::Plugin
bash completion should just work when you install new commands. Bash::Completion is a system to use and write bash completion rules.
For end-users, you just need to add this line to your .bashrc or .bash_profile:
This will load all the installed Bash::Completion plugins, make sure they should be activated and generate the proper bash code to setup bash completion for them.
If you later install a new command line tool, and it has a Bash::Completion::Plugin- based plugin, all your new shells will have bash completion rules for it. You can also force immediate setup by running the same command:
To write a new Bash::Completion plugin, see Bash::Completion::Plugin.
Create a Bash::Completion instance.
Given a plugin name and a list reference of plugin arguments, loads the proper plugin class, creates the plugin instance and asks for possible completions.
Returns the Bash::Completion::Request object.
Checks all plugins found if they should be activated.
Generates and returns the proper bash code snippet to it all up.
Search @INC for all classes in the Bash::Completion::Plugins:: namespace.
