Re: autocompletion of file url's


When i said "I have no idea where to start" i really meant it! Therefore i have a few questions...see my comments within your reply.
FYI: i have a debian system with zsh v4.2.5-7 (from a deb package) installed....in the meantime i'll update this to v4.3.2 available via the zsh website.

I've started using subversion a bit recently and it annoys the hell out
of me when you have to specify repositories etc with file urls since
autocompletion doesn't work. e.g.

It looks like the completion function is still not all that
sophisticated, so presumably no subversion user up to now has got to
grips with the nitty gritty.  Here's your chance to become a zsh
completion wizard...
This makes it sound like there are zsh functions already in place for subversion, is this correct? If so, where can i find them and how do i set my shell up to use them as i'm pretty sure they are currently not in use on my debian machine.
The despatcher for subversion commands doesn't have an explicit entry
for "import", so it tries to synthesize it from the help text and
doesn't get it right.  This adds an explicit entry.  I'm guessing the
I assume you are talking about zsh functions for subversion command autocompletion here? e.g. "svn che<tab>" completes to "svn checkout" - again, i don't think i currently have this working - how do i do this?
first argument will usually be a directory, but that can be changed if
not.  The URL completion for the second argument is standard across the
completion system and should be good enough for your purposes.
Do you mean generic URL completion for things like "file:///p<tab>" should already work? If so, it is not in my case - again, how can i get it working?
Say if you come across any more problems; I only use subversion very
occasionally (and the Perforce completion is a good deal more complete
:-)) but it's an important thing to get right.
The only problem is that i'm a total newbie to this so i apologies for my ignorance :o)
I've added matching parentheses to the case statement because they
looked nicer.
