Yes, the bug should be addressed properly.  The behavior should
be controlled by users - at least by option and preferably also
on the fly, during completion (by a toggle or other means).

At a minimum, whatever means are currently provided to give users
some control over this, however arcane, rudimentary, or hackish,
should be well documented.

(And yes, Icicles buffer-name completion has already been described
in this bug thread.)

Hi all,

again the same question: what to do with this bug report?  The behavior
is still what a few people (including RMS) dislike, it is easy to
override it (although there is no mention of that in the manual, which
is very bad IMHO!), it also seems to be solved in Ivy (I don't know
about other completion frameworks - I would bet Icicles have a knob for
that, because Icicles have a knob for everything; Helm anybody?).

My personal suggestion would be either add a user option or (as a last
resort) write about the hack mentioned here in the manual, in the node
(info "(emacs)Select buffer").

Regards,

    Completion styles other than plain prefix completion
    (e.g. partial-completion, substring completion, ...) can't just use
    try-completion, so they use all-completions and then merge the resulting
    entries to construct the result of completion.

I see.  But it should not be hard to bind a variable to say "this call
to all-completions is for completion, not for displaying a list."

    This said, I can't think of any reason why it's important to show the
    current buffer in *Completions* for C-x b since C-x b is about switching
    to another buffer.

The reason it is important for me is that sometimes I use this to see
what buffers exist with a certain prefix -- and the omission of the
current buffer makes the result incorrect.

Completion styles other than plain prefix completion
(e.g. partial-completion, substring completion, ...) can't just use
try-completion, so they use all-completions and then merge the resulting
entries to construct the result of completion.

So `all-completions' is sometimes used to build a *Completions* buffer,
but it's also used internally in various cases to perform completion.

So removing the current buffer from completion means it needs to be
removed from `all-completions's output, whereas displaying it in
*Completions* means it should be included in `all-completions's output.

This said, I can't think of any reason why it's important to show the
current buffer in *Completions* for C-x b since C-x b is about switching
to another buffer.

       It's somewhat difficult to distinguish the "all-completions for display"
       case from the "all-completions for completion" in the existing
       completion framework.
       But I'll see how we can get that behavior.

I thought the distinction is between `try-completions' and
`all-completions'.  What am I missing?

Yes, that's what I meant by:

   It's somewhat difficult to distinguish the "all-completions for display"
   case from the "all-completions for completion" in the existing
   completion framework.
   But I'll see how we can get that behavior.

    I didn't say they were not important, just that arguing about them is
    a waste of time.  Nothing good ever comes out of these arguments.

Rather than just argue about good defaults, I plan to poll the users.

    I find arguments about defaults a waste of time.

Defaults are very important issues, because they affect how good Emacs
is for new users.

This kind of completion surprise is something that, by default,
should not happen.

    > When in the *mail* buffer, I found that C-x b *ma TAB offered me
    [...]
    > and did not mention *mail* at all.

    That's on purpose: C-x b is about moving to another buffer, so it
    explicitly excludes the current buffer.

TAB excludes the current buffer from completion, so that you can
more often get a useful completion result.

However, listing the available completions is a different issue.
Omitting the current buffer there is not beneficial; it only gives
the user less useful information.  There, the current buffer
should be included.

Basically, try-complete should exclude the current buffer
but all-completions should include it.

I did, years ago.  In Icicles you can do just that.
I suggested the approach here based on experience with it.

1. A user option lists the completion methods to use (i.e., to make available
for cycling, in the order specified).

2. During completion, `C-(' cycles to the next method.

A user can also do this specifically, for given commands.  That is, a given
command can have a list of completion methods associated with it.  When this is
the case, that command's list overrides the global list, for use by `C-('.  A
separate user option records these command-specific completion preferences.

Vanilla Emacs could do something similar, with little coding, IMO.  No, I'm not
going to do it.  This description should suffice, and the Icicles code is freely
available for reference, if anyone is really interested.  Anyway, I'm betting
that even _if_ Emacs Dev wanted to do something like this they would not want to
do it the same way.


[Actually, Icicles has two keys for completing (in different ways), and thus two
different lists of methods for cycling, one for each completion key.  `C-('
cycles among the methods associated with `TAB' completion.  `M-(' cycles among
the methods associated with `S-TAB' completion.]

I find arguments about defaults a waste of time.  So I think instead
of arguing and polling, we should just make sure there's a completion
style that closely resembles what you want, i.e. candidates are found
by matching their beginning with what the user typed.  Currently, I
find no such style in what minibuffer.el offers, or maybe there's a
bug (see my other mail for bug #9591).

(Btw, why do we have 2 separate bug reports about the same issue?)

I agree.

retitle 9598 C-x b completion should also display current buffer.
thanks

> When in the *mail* buffer, I found that C-x b *ma TAB offered me
[...]

That's on purpose: C-x b is about moving to another buffer, so it
explicitly excludes the current buffer.

> And the current buffer should not be excluded from a completion list,
> when a completion list is displayed.

It's somewhat difficult to distinguish the "all-completions for display"
case from the "all-completions for completion" in the existing
completion framework.
But I'll see how we can get that behavior.

    And we have been over this before[*].  People, including you, have pointed out
    the user-oriented problems with this UI design, but Stefan really wants it this
    way.  So you and other users will continue to be surprised.

I think we should poll the users about this question.  That way we can
resolve the disagreement based on something more objective.

    IOW, let users choose at completion time which completion style(s) to use, on
    demand.  Each time they change methods they can complete anew and find out
    whether there are matches using that method.

This might be too complicated an interface to be good to use.
But you could try implementing it and we could judge based

Yes, the default matching uses wildcard patterns.  In fact, the default matching
uses several different matching schemes, in sequence, until one of them results
in matches.

See my reply to your post today about bug #9591.

And we have been over this before[*].  People, including you, have pointed out
the user-oriented problems with this UI design, but Stefan really wants it this
way.  So you and other users will continue to be surprised.


[*] I cannot find appropriate emacs-devel threads to cite here, because it is
impossible to search at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/ etc. for
`+from:rms@HIDDEN', because of too many hits.  That limitation sounds
reasonable at first, until you realize that you cannot even combine such a
filter by ANDing it with a small set of hits from another pattern - e.g.
`:subject:complet' (regardless of AND order).  Similarly, I couldn't find a way
to search at http://debbugs.gnu.org/ for bug-list postings (not submittals) from
rms@HIDDEN with subject-line matches.  Poor GNU.

This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgement at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

I typed C-b R TAB, not noticing I was already in RMAIL,
and it completed to ` *message-viewer RMAIL*'.

This is totally surprising and unhelpful.

I created a buffer called faUlt and found that U TAB completes
to faUlt.  This sort of thing will only confuse people

When in the *mail* buffer, I found that C-x b *ma TAB offered me
    *Shell Command Output* 	les-luthiers.xmail
    maintainers.bypkg 	rmail.el
    summary

and did not mention *mail* at all.  That is confusing and unhelpful
too, for it to offer buffers that did not have the *'s.

I surmise it is treating the input as a wildcard pattern.
I think that is a misguided feature.  The *'s should be
treated literally.  And the current buffer should not be
excluded from a completion list, when a completion list is displayed.


If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
/home/rms/emacs-bzr/trunk/etc/DEBUG.
