==Z Shell Completion for GHC, Cabal and Hugs==
 
 
The Z Shell is a powerful shell with extensive completion support.
 
 
==Features==
 
 
The <tt>_ghc</tt> script supports completion for <tt>ghc</tt> and
 
<tt>ghc-pkg</tt>. The completion features include the following:
 
 
* all options with a description for each option
 
* directories
 
* package names
 
* system libraries (<tt>-l</tt> option)
 
* <tt>ghc-pkg</tt> commands
 
 
The <tt>_cabal</tt> script support completion for the <tt>cabal</tt>
 
command. The completion features include the following:
 
 
* Cabal commands
 
* all options with a description for each option
 
* directories
 
* package names
 
 
The <tt>_hugs</tt> script provides completion for options.
 
 
==Installation==
 
 
Put the <tt>_ghc</tt>, <tt>_cabal</tt> and <tt>_hugs</tt> scripts in a path
 
that <tt>zsh</tt> searches during autoloading, for example
 
<tt>/usr/share/zsh/functions</tt> or a private directory (which
 
must be added to the <tt>FPATH</tt> environment variable).
 
 
Completion must be enabled by adding to <tt>.zshrc</tt> the
 
following lines:
 
 
autoload -U compinit
 
compinit
 
 
Completion functionality can be configured using styles.
 
These are set with the <tt>zstyle</tt> function.
 
 
Here are some examples:
 
 
zstyle ':completion:*' completer _complete _match _approximate
 
zstyle ':completion:*' use-cache on
 
zstyle ':completion:*:approximate:*' max-errors 1 numeric
 
 
See the <tt>zsh</tt> documenation for details on configuring the
 
completion system.
