The issue here is that when inserting a common prefix for e.g. a
substring match, we increase the amount of available candidates again to
things the user didn't want.
An example is in share/functions - a completion for "inter" would
previously expand to "_fish" because it matched:
The completion afterwards would then show 189 possible matches, only
three of which (the above) actually matched the original "inter".
I'm trying to come to terms with both C++ and our codebase, so any criticism is much appreciated!
