;;; Commentary:

25 26 27 28 29
;; Names with "--" are for functions and variables that are meant to be for
;; internal use only.

;; Functional completion tables have an extended calling conventions:
;; - The `action' can be (additionally to nil, t, and lambda) of the form
30 31
;;   (boundaries . SUFFIX) in which case it should return
;;   (boundaries START . END).  See `completion-boundaries'.
32 33 34 35 36
;;   Any other return value should be ignored (so we ignore values returned
;;   from completion tables that don't know about this new `action' form).

;;; Bugs:

37 38 39
;; - completion-all-sorted-completions list all the completions, whereas
;;   it should only lists the ones that `try-completion' would consider.
;;   E.g.  it should honor completion-ignored-extensions.
40
;; - choose-completion can't automatically figure out the boundaries
41 42 43
;;   corresponding to the displayed completions because we only
;;   provide the start info but not the end info in
;;   completion-base-position.
44
;; - quoting is problematic.  E.g. the double-dollar quoting used in
45
;;   substitute-in-file-name (and hence read-file-name-internal) bumps
46
;;   into various bugs:
47 48 49
;; - choose-completion doesn't know how to quote the text it inserts.
;;   E.g. it fails to double the dollars in file-name completion, or
;;   to backslash-escape spaces and other chars in comint completion.
50 51 52 53 54
;;   - when completing ~/tmp/fo$$o, the highligting in *Completions*
;;     is off by one position.
;;   - all code like PCM which relies on all-completions to match
;;     its argument gets confused because all-completions returns unquoted
;;     texts (as desired for *Completions* output).
55 56 57
;; - C-x C-f ~/*/sr ? should not list "~/./src".
;; - minibuffer-force-complete completes ~/src/emacs/t<!>/lisp/minibuffer.el
;;   to ~/src/emacs/trunk/ and throws away lisp/minibuffer.el.
58

59 60
;;; Todo:

61 62 63 64
;; - completion-insert-complete-hook (called after inserting a complete
;;   completion), typically used for "complete-abbrev" where it would expand
;;   the abbrev.  Tho we'd probably want to provide it from the
;;   completion-table.
65 66
;; - extend `boundaries' to provide various other meta-data about the
;;   output of `all-completions':
67 68
;;   - preferred sorting order when displayed in *Completions*.
;;   - annotations/text-properties to add when displayed in *Completions*.
69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83
;;   - quoting/unquoting (so we can complete files names with envvars
;;     and backslashes, and all-completion can list names without
;;     quoting backslashes and dollars).
;;   - indicate how to turn all-completion's output into
;;     try-completion's output: e.g. completion-ignored-extensions.
;;     maybe that could be merged with the "quote" operation above.
;;   - completion hook to run when the completion is
;;     selected/inserted (maybe this should be provided some other
;;     way, e.g. as text-property, so `try-completion can also return it?)
;;     both for when it's inserted via TAB or via choose-completion.
;;   - indicate that `all-completions' doesn't do prefix-completion
;;     but just returns some list that relates in some other way to
;;     the provided string (as is the case in filecache.el), in which
;;     case partial-completion (for example) doesn't make any sense
;;     and neither does the completions-first-difference highlight.
84 85 86
;;   - indicate how to display the completions in *Completions* (turn
;;     \n into something else, add special boundaries between
;;     completions).  E.g. when completing from the kill-ring.
87 88

;; - make partial-completion-mode obsolete:
89
;;   - (?) <foo.h> style completion for file names.
90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100
;;     This can't be done identically just by tweaking completion,
;;     because partial-completion-mode's behavior is to expand <string.h>
;;     to /usr/include/string.h only when exiting the minibuffer, at which
;;     point the completion code is actually not involved normally.
;;     Partial-completion-mode does it via a find-file-not-found-function.
;;   - special code for C-x C-f <> to visit the file ref'd at point
;;     via (require 'foo) or #include "foo".  ffap seems like a better
;;     place for this feature (supplemented with major-mode-provided
;;     functions to find the file ref'd at point).

;; - case-sensitivity currently confuses two issues:
101
;;   - whether or not a particular completion table should be case-sensitive
102
;;     (i.e. whether strings that differ only by case are semantically
103 104 105 106 107
;;     equivalent)
;;   - whether the user wants completion to pay attention to case.
;;   e.g. we may want to make it possible for the user to say "first try
;;   completion case-sensitively, and if that fails, try to ignore case".

108
;; - add support for ** to pcm.
109 110
;; - Add vc-file-name-completion-table to read-file-name-internal.
;; - A feature like completing-help.el.
