AutoComplete Basics

AutoComplete is an emacs package with will provided suggestions for completions as you type.

There are a number of lisp function that get called to handle the completion. Normally you don't have to worry about them is the default mode of operation; you just start typing and suggestions get made. But you if you want to start tweaking the behaviour, you have to know about them.

From what I can gather:

For example, if you don't want auto complete to suggest things automatically, you do this:

(setq ac-auto-start nil)
(global-set-key "\M-/" 'ac-start)

Normally ac-start is called after you type in a number of characters (as controlled by ac-auto-start)

The ac-expand function is normally bound to TAB.
