Date: Fri, 27 May 2022 18:29:56 +0200 [thread overview] Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw) Hi, I'm writing completion for a command that has an option like: --makepkg-args=comma,separated,list where the comma separated list are arguments to the makepkg command. I thus though I could use "_sequence _makepkg". Unfortunately this doesn't work if the user hasn't tried to tab complete "makepkg" yet. Even more annoying _makepkg is defined in a file with a different name (_pacman) and the following #compdef at the top: #compdef pacman pacman.static=pacman pacman-conf pacman-key makepkg I.e. _makepkg is not the main "service" of the completion definition file. That file has a main completion function that dispatches on $service * How do I trigger loading that file from my completion so I can offer completions to the flag --makepkg-args? Is it even possible? * Or should I make a wrapper that calls _pacman and overrides $service locally? Both of these approaches seem rather hackish. It would be nice if I could ask zsh: give me whatever is used to complete the command "makepkg". Best regards, Arvid Norlander
