This package provides a generic completion method based on building a balanced decision tree with each candidate being a leaf. To traverse the tree from the root to a desired leaf, typically a sequence of `read-key' can be used. In order for `read-key' to make sense, the tree needs to be visualized appropriately, with a character at each branch node. So this completion method works only for things that you can see on your screen, all at once: * character positions * word or subword start positions * line beginning positions * link positions * window positions If you're familiar with the popular `ace-jump-mode' package, this package does all that and more, without the implementation headache.
