Hi. I am developing a free editor for RoR ( ).
I am looking for a way to enhance code autocompletion.
While typing "link_" , the editor will propose matching strings to
complete what you are typing, such as : "link_to","link_to_remote",etc..

I guess i could pipe a shell to ri and get some informations, or else?

If using ri is the best choice, i am not an expert : whowwould i extract

Any tips or help is kindly appreciated...
