Complete::Module - Complete with installed Perl module names

    This document describes version 0.263 of Complete::Module (from Perl
    distribution Complete-Module), released on 2023-03-19.

     use Complete::Module qw(complete_module);
     my $res = complete_module(word => 'Text::A');
     # -> ['Text::ANSI', 'Text::ANSITable', 'Text::ANSITable::', 'Text::Abbrev']

  $Complete::Module::OPT_SHORTCUT_PREFIXES => hash
    Shortcut prefixes. The default is:

       bs  => "Bencher/Scenario/",
       bss => "Bencher/Scenarios/",
       df  => "DateTime/Format/",
       dz  => "Dist/Zilla/",
       dzb => "Dist/Zilla/PluginBundle/",
       dzp => "Dist/Zilla/Plugin/",
       dzr => "Dist/Zilla/Role/",
       pw  => "Pod/Weaver/",
       pwb => "Pod/Weaver/PluginBundle/",
       pwp => "Pod/Weaver/Plugin/",
       pwr => "Pod/Weaver/Role/",
       pws => "Pod/Weaver/Section/",
       rp  => "Regexp/Pattern/",
       ss  => "Sah/Schema/",
       sss => "Sah/Schemas/",
    If user types one of the keys, it will be replaced with the matching value from
    this hash.


     complete_module(%args) -> any

    Complete with installed Perl module names.

    For each directory in @INC (coderefs are ignored), find Perl modules and
    module prefixes which have "word" as prefix. So for example, given "Te"
    as "word", will return e.g. "[Template, Template::, Term::, Test,
    Test::, Text::]". Given "Text::" will return "[Text::ASCIITable,
    Text::Abbrev, ...]" and so on.

    This function has a bit of overlapping functionality with Module::List,
    but this function is geared towards shell tab completion. Compared to
    Module::List, here are some differences: 1) list modules where prefix is
    incomplete; 2) interface slightly different; 3) (currently) doesn't do
    recursing; 4) contains conveniences for completion, e.g. map casing,
    expand intermediate paths (see "Complete" for more details on those
    features), autoselection of path separator character, some shortcuts,
    and so on.

    This function is not exported by default, but exportable.

    Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

    *   exclude_dir => *bool*

        (No description)

    *   exclude_leaf => *bool*

        (No description)

    *   find_pm => *bool* (default: 1)

        Whether to find .pm files.

    *   find_pmc => *bool* (default: 1)

        Whether to find .pmc files.

    *   find_pod => *bool* (default: 1)

        Whether to find .pod files.

    *   find_prefix => *bool* (default: 1)

        Whether to find module prefixes.

    *   ns_prefix => *perl::modname*

        Namespace prefix.

        This is useful if you want to complete module under a specific
        namespace (instead of the root). For example, if you set "ns_prefix"
        to "Dist::Zilla::Plugin" (or "Dist::Zilla::Plugin::") and word is
        "F", you can get "['FakeRelease', 'FileFinder::', 'FinderCode']"
        (those are modules under the "Dist::Zilla::Plugin::" namespace).

    *   ns_prefixes => *array[perl::modname]*

        Namespace prefixes.

        If you specify this instead of "ns_prefix", then the routine will
        search from all the prefixes instead of just one.

    *   path_sep => *str*

        Path separator.

        For convenience in shell (bash) completion, instead of defaulting to
        "::" all the time, will look at "word". If word does not contain any
        "::" then will default to "/". This is because "::" (contains colon)
        is rather problematic as it is by default a word-break character in
        bash and the word needs to be quoted to avoid word-breaking by bash.

    *   recurse => *bool*

        (No description)

    *   recurse_matching => *str* (default: "level-by-level")

        (No description)

    *   word* => *str* (default: "")

        Word to complete.

    Return value: (any)

    Can be used to set the default for
    $Complete::Module::OPT_SHORTCUT_PREFIXES. It should be in the form of:

    To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull
    requests on GitHub.

    Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You
    can simply modify the code, then test via:

     % prove -l

    If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally
    on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla,
    Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two
    other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps
    required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
