Tickit::Widget::Entry::Plugin::Completion - add word-completion logic
    to a Tickit::Widget::Entry


       use Tickit::Widget::Entry;
       use Tickit::Widget::Entry::Plugin::Completion;
       my $entry = Tickit::Widget::Entry->new( ... );
       Tickit::Widget::Entry::Plugin::Completion->apply( $entry,
          words => [ make_words() ],


    This package applies code to a Tickit::Widget::Entry instance to
    implement word-completion logic while editing. This logic is activated
    by pressing the <Tab> key.

    If the word currently being edited has a unique match in the list of
    words, then the word is completed entirely, followed by a space.

    If there are multiple words that could complete from the word at the
    cursor, then a popup menu is presented showing the next available
    characters or matches. The user can continue typing more characters to
    narrow down the choice until a unique match is found.



       Tickit::Widget::Entry::Plugin::Completion->apply( $entry, %params )

    Applies the plugin code to the given Tickit::Widget::Entry instance.

    The following named parameters are recognised

    gen_words => CODE

         @words = $gen_words->( %args )

      A CODE reference to a subroutine used to generate the list of words
      at the current position. It is passed the following name/value pairs
      to assist it:

      word => STRING

	The partial word currently being completed.

      wordpos => INT

	The position of the beginning of the word, within the line. Will be
	0 for the initial word of the line.

      entry => Tickit::Widget::Entry

	The underlying entry widget instance.

    words => ARRAY

      A shortcut to providing gen_words; a reference to an array containing
      all the possible words, in no particular order, that are offered for

    use_popup => BOOL

      Optional. If false, do not display a popup menu. Defaults to true.

      When this is disabled, the completion logic will apply longest-prefix
      matching on the set of available words, but will not otherwise
      display or offer any interactive UI on the list of matches.

    ignore_case => BOOL

      Optional. If true, word matching will be performed ignoring case, by
      using the /i regexp flag. Defaults to false. When the completion
      logic has selected a word to insert, it may change the case of the
      text already in the buffer to match the completion word.

    append_after_word => STRING

      Optional. If set, append this string after a successful unique match.
      Defaults to a single space.
