Dear Karim, dear OMers,
I had a quick tour of 6.19 and I discovered the auto-completion feature. Such a pleasant surprise !
This is going to save a huge amount of time.
Unfortunately right now this functionality is not working with external packages (although the functions appear in the list of suggestions).
I tried to modify the code in this way :
(defmethod get-name ((self function)) (format nil “~S” (function-name self)))
(defmethod get-name ((self class)) (format nil “~S” (class-name self)))
(defmethod get-name ((self symbol)) (format nil “~S” (symbol-name self)))
and now it seems to work (it is necessary to start typing using the package indication (like for exemple alea::ran01, and not the name of the function (which is pretty obvious). However packages nicknames are not taken into account. It would be great if auto-completion could work with package nicknames as well (as currently implemented in the lisp text editor, for example).
