Been hacking on emacs more lately, my latest trick is auto-completion. I started here at Richard Rodger's page on autocompletion, and added the following lisp:
; load the autocompletion wordlist on startup
(setq perl-wordlist-default-file "~/.vim/wordlists/perl.list")
(setq auto-load-wordlist 't)
(find-file-noselect perl-wordlist-default-file 'NOWARN)
; use this plugin in cperl-mode
(local-set-key "\C-i" 'my-tab)))
I used the word list from my vim ide, but I think I will go one step further and generate a wordlist from the codebases I work on to make it complete. It's been working well so far.
