Python dot expression completion using Pymacs.
This almost certainly needs work, but if you add
(require 'pycomplete)
to your .xemacs/init.el file (untried w/ GNU Emacs so far) and have Pymacs
installed, when you hit M-TAB it will try to complete the dot expression
before point. For example, given this import at the top of the file:
import time
typing "" then hitting M-TAB should complete "time.clock".
This is unlikely to be done the way Emacs completion ought to be done, but
it's a start. Perhaps someone with more Emacs mojo can take this stuff and
do it right.
See pycomplete.el for the Emacs Lisp side of things.
