@section Integration with external Lisp packages.
While reading filenames in the minibuffer, @value{tramp} must decide
whether it completes possible incomplete filenames, or not. Imagine
there is the following situation: You have typed @kbd{C-x C-f
@value{prefix}ssh@value{postfixhop} @key{TAB}}. @value{tramp} cannot
know, whether @option{ssh} is a method or a host name. It checks
therefore the last input character you have typed. If this is
@key{TAB}, @key{SPACE} or @kbd{?}, @value{tramp} assumes that you are
still in filename completion, and it does not connect to the possible
remote host @option{ssh}.
@vindex tramp-completion-mode
External packages, which use other characters for completing filenames
in the minibuffer, must signal this to @value{tramp}. For this case,
the variable @code{tramp-completion-mode} can be bound temporarily to
a non-nil value.
