LIBRARY and file name completion?

May 20, 2008
Syracuse, NY, USA
I am here.

d:\tc25\library> d
2019-09-03  13:40              51  doperl.lib
2019-07-17  23:57             789  tl.lib

If I type

library /r <Tab>

my command line turns into

[/code]library /r doperl[/code]

and more Tab's do nothing. It'll do that even if I'm in another directory!

1. Where's it getting "doperl" in the first place? [doperl.lib contains a "doperl" library routine.]

2. Why doesn't it do ANY file name completion?
Hey @vefatica , on my system, it seems to be grabbing the first LIBRARY function that I have.

If I do;
c:\program files\jpsoft\tcmd25\library>library /f
0107 {
@set eventday=01-07
@set eventname=Orthodox Christmas

I am presented with the first Library function of my list. Now, if I do;
c:\program files\jpsoft\tcmd25\library>dir

Like yourself, tab completion has the same effect here.

   _admin: 1
_elevated: 1

@set eventday=01-07

Did that get snipped? Here, "library /f" shows ALL of my library routines (and it looks like you have a few).
This is better in build 17. After "LIBRARY /R" it completes file names. But I wonder about the function name completion mechanism.

After "LIBRARY /F", <Tab> completes the name of the first function it finds. After "LIBRARY /F partial_name" <Tab> completes the first matching function name. But in either case, another <Tab> does nothing. Is that WAD? Experience with file name completion makes me expect (naively) that more <Tab>s would give me more matches if there are any.
