can complete the command name abbreviation @code{p-b} into
@code{print-buffer}, because no other command starts with two words
whose initials are @samp{p} and @samp{b}. To use this library, put
@code{(load "complete")} in your @file{~/.emacs} file (@pxref{Init
whose initials are @samp{p} and @samp{b}. To enable this, use the
command @kbd{M-x partial-completion-mode} or customize the option
@code{partial-completion-mode}. Unless the option
@code{PC-disable-includes} is @code{t}, Partial Completion mode also
extends @kbd{M-x find-file} so that the @samp{<@dots{}>} sequence is
interpreted as a file on the path @code{PC-include-file-path}. When
this mode is active, the Meta versions of the @kbd{TAB}, @kbd{SPC},
@kbd{RET} and @kbd{?} keys act as those keys do by default for
