NAME
       Term::Complete - Perl word completion module

SYNOPSIS
           $input = Complete('prompt_string', \@completion_list);
           $input = Complete('prompt_string', @completion_list);

DESCRIPTION
       This routine provides word completion on the list of words
       in the array (or array ref).

       The tty driver is put into raw mode and restored using an
       operating system specific command, in UNIX-like environ-
       ments "stty".

       The following command characters are defined:

       <tab>
           Attempts word completion.  Cannot be changed.

       ^D  Prints completion list.  Defined by $Term::Com-
           plete::complete.

       ^U  Erases the current input.  Defined by $Term::Com-
           plete::kill.

       <del>, <bs>
           Erases one character.  Defined by $Term::Com-
           plete::erase1 and $Term::Complete::erase2.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Bell sounds when word completion fails.

BUGS
       The completion character <tab> cannot be changed.
