................................................................................

Example: \fB% puts $b<TAB>\fP will call the custom completer
with the four arguments \fI"$b"\fP, \fI"5"\fP, \fI"8"\fP and \fI"puts $b"\fP.
The custom completer could return a string like "$bl $black $blue", which
will complete "$b" to "$bl" (the longest match) and offer a list of two
further matches "$black" and "$blue".

For further reference, see the proc tclreadline::script_completer in
the file tclreadlineSetup.tcl.

.TP 5
\fB::tclreadline::readline builtincompleter\fP [\fIbool\fP]
enable or disable the builtin completer. If the builtin completer
is enabled, it will be invoked either if there is no custom completer,
or the custom completer returned an empty  string. The builtin

.TP 5
\fB::tclreadline::Print\fP [\fIyes / no\fP]
turns on or off the default behavior of tclsh to print the result of
every command. This is turned on by default, so it will just behave
as the tclsh w/o tclreadline. Turning off might be useful, when reading
binary data for example. If \fB::tclreadline::Print\fP is called w/o
arguments, it just returns the current setting.

.TP 5
\fB::tclreadline::Loop\fP
enter the tclreadline main loop. This command is typically called from
the startup resource file (something .tclshrc, depending on the interpreter



you use). \fB::tclreadline::Loop\fP will normally not return.




.TP 5
\fB::tclreadline::prompt1\fP
a proc which is called by ::tclreadline::Loop and returns a string
which will be displayed as the primary prompt. This prompt will be
something like "[info nameofexecutable] \[[pwd]\]" possibly fancy colored.
The default proc is defined on entering the ::tclreadline::Loop,

.SH HISTORY

This version of \fBtclreadline\fP is still a development version.
Pretty a lot of features and ideas are not implemented yet. The
reason for this is the lack of time and manpower.
So you are welcome to modify and contribute to the code.
If you have suggestions, please let me know.

enter the tclreadline main loop. This command is typically called from
the startup resource file (something .tclshrc, depending on the interpreter
you use, see the file `sample.tclshrc'). The main loop sets up some
completion characteristics as variable -- try something like "puts $b<TAB>" -- 
and command completion -- try "puts [in<TAB>".
\fB::tclreadline::Loop\fP will normally not return. 
If you want to write your own main loop and/or own custom completers,
it is probably a good idea to start with tclreadline::Loop
(see the file tclreadlineSetup.tcl).
