emacs library that enhances minibuffer/input completion
Icicles lets you do the following:
* cycle through completion candidates that match your current input. * use a pattern to match completion candidates, including: - regexp matching (including substring). - fuzzy matching. - prefix matching (as in vanilla Emacs). - command abbreviation matching. * use multiple regexps to match candidates, chaining these filters together like piped 'grep' commands. * see all possible complete inputs (pertinent commands, variables, and so on) that match your partial or regexp input: the list is updated dynamically (incrementally) if you change your input. * see all previous inputs that match your partial or regexp input, and selectively reuse them. * match input against completion candidates that do not match a given regexp; that is, complement the set of matches and use the result for subsequent matching. * use multiple regexps to search (and replace) text across multiple buffers, files, or regions. * search areas of text that have a certain text property, such as a face. * browse Imenu or tags entries that match your partial or regexp input. * create and use multiple-choice menus; that is, menus where you can choose multiple entries any number of times. * create and use multi-commands so you can perform an action on any number of candidate inputs any number of times. * perform set operations (intersection, union, etc) on the fly, using sets of completion candidates or other strings. * persistently save and later reuse sets of completion candidates (e.g. project file names). * complete input piecewise, against multiple completion candidates, in parallel. * complete key sequences, and navigate the key-binding hierarchy (this includes the menu bar menu hierarchy) (see also LaCarte) * sort completion candidates on the fly, in multiple, context-dependent ways.
