1 Z Shell Completion for GHC and Hugs
The Z Shell is a powerful shell with extensive completion support.
The _ghc script supports completion for ghc and ghc-pkg. The completion features include the following:
- all options with a description for each option
- package names
- system libraries (-l option)
- ghc-pkg commands
The _hugs script provides completion for options.
Put the _ghc and _hugs scripts in a path that zsh searches during autoloading, for example /usr/share/zsh/functions or a private directory (which must be added to the FPATH environment variable).
Completion must be enabled by adding to .zshrc the following lines:
autoload -U compinit compinit
Completion functionality can be configured using styles. These are set with the zstyle function.
Here are some examples:
zstyle ':completion:*' completer _complete _match _approximate zstyle ':completion:*' use-cache on zstyle ':completion:*:approximate:*' max-errors 1 numeric
See the zsh documenation for details on configuring the completion system.
