;; Keywords: internal, lisp, extensions, help, abbrev, faces, local
;; Compatibility: GNU Emacs 20.x
;;; Commentary: 
;;    This a subset of file `elect-mbuf.el', which should be loaded
;;    before the current file. This file is separate from
;;    `elect-mbuf.el' to allow loading it after all keys have been
;;    bound, without having to reload all of `elect-mbuf.el'.
;;    You will typically load `elect-mbuf.el' at some point, then
;;    perhaps load other files that also bind keys, then load this.
;;    That is, put this at the very end of your `~/.emacs':
;;      (require 'rebind-mbuf-maps)
;;  New constants defined here:
;;    `completing-read-prompt-suffix', 
;;    `minibuffer-completion-help-string'.
;; NOTE:
;; Load this file only AFTER ALL other files are loaded that bind
;; keys, so that the top-level `rebind-minibuffer-completion-maps'
;; here will pick up all those previous definitions.

;; Do this *after* calling `rebind-minibuffer-completion-maps' for doc string.

Minibuffer Completion

Your input in the minibuffer can be completed in several ways.
You can:

  * Complete the current input in the minibuffer.
        Complete a word at a time:              \\[minibuffer-complete-word]
        Complete as much as possible:           \\[minibuffer-complete]

  * Choose a default input value.
        Cycle among candidate default values:   \\[previous-default-input], \

  * Choose a previous input from the minibuffer history.
        Cycle among minibuffer history items:   \\[previous-history-element], \
        Search among minibuffer history items:  \
\\[previous-matching-history-element], \\[next-matching-history-element]

  * Choose from the possible completions for the current input.
        Show the list, plus this explanation:   \\[minibuffer-completion-help+]
        Choose from the list:                   \\<completion-list-mode-map>\
\\[choose-completion], \\[mouse-choose-completion]
                                        (in buffer *Completions*)
        The list is also available when completion is ambiguous.

  * Modify your input if you like, once chosen or completed.
        Send your finished input to Emacs:      \
        Abandon minibuffer input:               \\[abort-recursive-edit]

Remember: You can always input any character that is bound to a
          command (e.g. \\[minibuffer-complete-word], \
\\[minibuffer-complete], \\[minibuffer-completion-help+]) by preceding it \
with \\<global-map>\\[quoted-insert].

Here are the current bindings for the minibuffer:

  "Description of minibuffer bindings.")

;; Do *after* calling `rebind-minibuffer-completion-maps' for default suffix.
(defconst completing-read-prompt-suffix
   "(\\<minibuffer-local-completion-map>\\[minibuffer-completion-help+] for \
help)  ")
  "*String to append to `completing-read's prompt, if there is room.
Intended to remind you how to obtain input completion help.
Set this to nil or to \"\" to append nothing.")
