Do you call an internal "completion" function?
If so, what parameters does it take?


Effectively, the call-back gets a char * pointer to the word of text
being entered, and a 'state' integer indicating whether the call-back
has been called with this pointer before (and if so how many times).
The user supplied 'generator' routine is supposed to return the next
partially matching word of acceptable input, and NULL in the case of
no remaining matches.  We may be able to alternately configure things
to give the call-back the whole line of text, together with start and
end integers bounding the current word.

Can axiom function names be easily mapped onto the set of symbols in
some package(s)?

Take care,
