;;; icomplete.el - minibuffer completion incremental feedback
;;; This package is in the publid domain.
;;; Author: Ken Manheimer <>
;;; Maintainer: Ken Manheimer <>
;;; Version: icomplete.el,v 3.2 1993/11/19 18:42:52 klm Exp klm
;;; Created: Mar 1993 - first release to usenet
;;; Keywords: help, abbrev
;;; Commentary:
;;; Loading this package implements a more finely-grained completion
;;; feedback scheme, indicating, within the minibuffer, the
;;; prospective minibuffer completion candidates, as you type. See
;;; the documentation string for 'icomplete-prompt' for a specific
;;; description of icompletion.
;;; This will not work on Emacs 18 versions - there may be a version
;;; for v18 in the elisp archives, at, in
;;; /pub/gnu/emacs/elisp-archive.
;;; Code:
