;;; Commentary:
;; This package is written for use in emacs lisp programs, where the
;; user is prompted for a string of the form:
;;
;; FOO,BAR,BAZ
;;
;; where FOO, BAR, and BAZ are elements of some table. The function
;; `multi-prompt' is a replacement `completing-read' that will allow
;; the user to enter a string like the above, yet get completion on
;; all FOO, BAR, and BAZ.
;;; Code:
(defvar multi-prompt-found nil
"List of entries currently added during a `multi-prompt'.")
;;;###autoload
(defun multi-prompt (separator

&optional mp-predicate require-match initial history)
"Completing prompt for a list of strings.
The first argument SEPARATOR should be the string (of length 1) to
separate the elements in the list. The second argument UNIQUE should
be non-nil, if each element must be unique. The remaining elements
are the arguments to `completing-read'. See that."
