"Alist of handlers to replace `completing-read', `read-file-name' in `helm-mode'.
Each entry is a cons cell like \(emacs_command . completing-read_handler\)
where key and value are symbols.
Each key is an Emacs command that use originaly `completing-read'.
Each value maybe an helm function that take same arguments as
`completing-read' plus NAME and BUFFER, where NAME is the name of the new
helm source and BUFFER the name of the buffer we will use.
This function prefix name must start by \"helm\".
See `helm-completing-read-symbols' for example.
Note that this function will be reused for ALL the `completing-read'
of this command, so it should handle all cases, e.g
If first `completing-read' complete against symbols and
second `completing-read' should handle only buffer,
your specialized function should handle the both.
If the value of an entry is nil completion will fall back to
emacs vanilla behavior.
e.g If you want to disable helm completion for `describe-function':
\(describe-function . nil\).
Ido is also supported, you can use `ido-completing-read' and
`ido-read-file-name' as value of an entry or just 'ido.
e.g ido completion for `find-file':
\(find-file . ido\)
same as
\(find-file . ido-read-file-name\)
Note that you don't need to enable `ido-mode' for this to work."

SORT-FN is a predicate to sort COLLECTION.
ALISTP when non--nil will not use `all-completions' to collect
candidates because it doesn't handle alists correctly for helm.
i.e In `all-completions' the car of each pair is used as value.
In helm we want to use the cdr instead like \(display . real\),
so we return the alist as it is with no transformation by all-completions.
e.g
\(setq A '((a . 1) (b . 2) (c . 3)))

"Read a string in the minibuffer, with helm completion.
It is helm `completing-read' equivalent.
- PROMPT is the prompt name to use.
- COLLECTION can be a list, vector, obarray or hash-table.
It can be also a function that receives three arguments:
the values string, predicate and t. See `all-completions' for more details.
Keys description:
- TEST: A predicate called with one arg i.e candidate.
- INITIAL-INPUT: Same as input arg in `helm'.
- PRESELECT: See preselect arg of `helm'.
- DEFAULT: This option is used only for compatibility with regular
Emacs `completing-read' (Same as DEFAULT arg of `completing-read').
- BUFFER: Name of helm-buffer.
- MUST-MATCH: Candidate selected must be one of COLLECTION.
- REQUIRES-PATTERN: Same as helm attribute, default is 0.
- HISTORY: A list containing specific history, default is nil.
When it is non--nil, all elements of HISTORY are displayed in
a special source before COLLECTION.
- INPUT-HISTORY: A symbol. the minibuffer input history will be
stored there, if nil or not provided, `minibuffer-history'
will be used instead.
- CASE-FOLD: Same as `helm-case-fold-search'.
- DEL-INPUT: Boolean, when non--nil (default) remove the partial
minibuffer input from HISTORY is present.
- PERSISTENT-ACTION: A function called with one arg i.e candidate.
- PERSISTENT-HELP: A string to document PERSISTENT-ACTION.
- MODE-LINE: A string or list to display in mode line.
(See `helm-mode-line-string')
- KEYMAP: A keymap to use in this `helm-comp-read'.
(The keymap will be shared with history source)
- NAME: The name related to this local source.
- EXEC-WHEN-ONLY-ONE: Bound `helm-execute-action-at-once-if-one'
to non--nil. (possibles values are t or nil).
- VOLATILE: Use volatile attribute \(enabled by default\).
- SORT: A predicate to give to `sort' e.g `string-lessp'.
- FC-TRANSFORMER: A `filtered-candidate-transformer' function.
- MARKED-CANDIDATES: If non--nil return candidate or marked candidates as a list.
- ALISTP: \(default is non--nil\) See `helm-comp-read-get-candidates'.
- CANDIDATES-IN-BUFFER: when non--nil use a source build with
`helm-candidates-in-buffer' which is much faster.
Argument VOLATILE have no effect when CANDIDATES-IN-BUFFER is non--nil.
Any prefix args passed during `helm-comp-read' invocation will be recorded
in `helm-current-prefix-arg', otherwise if prefix args were given before
`helm-comp-read' invocation, the value of `current-prefix-arg' will be used.
That's mean you can pass prefix args before or after calling a command
that use `helm-comp-read' See `helm-M-x' for example."

"Toggle generic helm completion.
All functions in Emacs that use `completing-read'
or `read-file-name' and friends will use helm interface
when this mode is turned on.
However you can modify this behavior for functions of your choice
with `helm-completing-read-handlers-alist'.
Called with a positive arg, turn on unconditionally, with a
negative arg turn off.
You can turn it on with `helm-mode'.
Some crap emacs functions may not be supported,
e.g `ffap-alternate-file' and maybe others
You can add such functions to `helm-completing-read-handlers-alist'
with a nil value.
Note: This mode will work only partially on Emacs23."
