Vile - perl library additions to Vile package

NAME

Vile - perl library additions to Vile package


SYNOPSIS

    use Vile;
    Vile::mlreply_opts($prompt, @options)

DESCRIPTION

This module is supposed to contain additions to the Vile package which are written in perl.

mlreply_opts PROMPT OPTIONS_LIST

Prompts the user with the given prompt and first of the provided option list. At the prompt, the user can <TAB> his way through all the possible options. He can also partially fill in a response and <TAB> through matching options only. When user presses <RET>, the user response is returned. If the user aborts the query (via the use of the escape key), an undef is returned.

Only backspace and kill-text keys work correctly for editing the mini-buffer. Vile's mini-buffer editing is not supported. Expand characters are also not recognized and hence this command resembles mlreply_no_opts in that respect despite the name.
