Hello I was wondering how to add global aliases to completion menu
selection?  Regular aliases and suffix aliases are already present.  I am
separating the menu selection items by tags.

zstyle ':completion:*' group-name ''

This is the debugging output from ^Xh when I want to add these completion
items.

tags in context :completion::complete:-command-::
    commands builtins functions aliases suffix-aliases reserved-words jobs
parameters parameters  (_command_names _autocd)
    commands
                      (_path_commands _command_names _autocd)
    jobs
                      (_jobs _command_names _autocd)
    parameters
                      (_parameters _command_names _autocd)
    local-directories named-directories
                       (_cd _autocd)
    users named-directories directory-stack
                       (_tilde _cd _autocd)

Thanks Jacob

Like this:

diff --git a/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names b/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names
index f8188774d..70b0ddcad 100644
--- a/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names
+++ b/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names
@@ -29,6 +29,7 @@ else
     "functions:shell function:compadd -k 'functions$ffilt'"
     'aliases:alias:compadd -Qk aliases'
     'suffix-aliases:suffix alias:_suffix_alias_files'
+    'global-aliases:global alias:compadd -Qk galiases'
     'reserved-words:reserved word:compadd -Qk reswords'
     'jobs:: _jobs -t'
     'parameters:: _parameters -g "^*(readonly|association)*" -qS= -r "\n\t\- =[+"'

Note that an alias does not have to be global in order to be able to be used in
command position; that is: depending on what your alias does, it might be
better to simply remove the -g from its definition.

Thanks for including this; it made it easy to find the right function.

Cheers,

Daniel
