Re: Three questions about a completer

Hmm, this was much harder than I thought. I see no difference with the
addition of the compstate[insert] line.

I tried this:

_list-result() {
    print "state: " $compstate[insert]
    compadd -M 'l:|=* m:{[:lower:]}={[:upper:]}' -f ${__lsdir:-HOME}/*

In fact, I have not been able to provoke a situation where the first line
does not print out "state: menu". Both if I hit "<alt-e>" and "<alt-E>",
what is printed is always "state: menu".
