This program is designed extensively to aid in the typing of valid

expressions into the home entry line. And it absolutely kills at

this. It is not designed to aid in the typing of sentences, ect.

It is also my interface to variables and programs: my own personal




This program is an event hook. It will monitor what you type

into the entry line and in the form of a menu it will offer

suggestions as to how the stuff typed in can be completed.

For example if you type in the lower case "a" character

the user will receive a menu with the following options:

1: abs(

2: ans(

3: and <-There is an unseen space after

4: approx( the and.

5: arcLen(

6: avgRC(

7: augment(

8: angle( <-There will be a down arrow because

the user can scroll the menu to

receive more options.

If after the "a" you typed an "n" then you would receive a

menu with the following:

1: ans(

2: and

3: angle(

The numbers 1,2,3, etc refer to f1, f2,f3 etc. Not the number keys.

If it tries to do a menu with only 1 item in it then instead the

text will be pasted and highlighted like with internet explorer.

It also offers suggestions as to how names of variables and folders

can be auto finished. If you auto finish a name of a folder then

it will assume the next thing that you want to type in is the name

of a file in that folder so you will instantly receive a menu with

the names of all variables in that folder. And it will only give

completion suggestions of the variables in that folder.

And something that I really hate about tios is the unit menu.

If I wanted to do force conversions I would A)Have to wade

through the unit menu to the listing of force units. B)Select

a unit to convert from. C)And then I would have to wade

through the unit menu all over again to get back to the force

units to find the unit to convert to.

I have solved this in Complete. It will remember the type of

unit that was last in the title bar. The unit menu is activated

by the "_" character. And if the unit menu is visible the

parts of the next 6 unit titles (as you scroll right) will be

displayed in the status line so that you can see what is upcoming

and be able to bypass them by pressing 2nd+right if you do not

want any of them.

In addition, Complete provides an outright replacement for the

unit menu which is available from all apps. See documentation

somewhere below.



Send the program to your calc and run it. It will then

be installed. It has been tested on ams versions 1.00,

2.03, and 2.05 on vti. And on my 2.05 (used to be 2.03)

HW1 calculator. Once installed you can delete it from

your calc, but you will need to install again after a

reset or if the calc crashes.

You will also need to have the file cmpltdat on your calculatore.

The internal databases are now external.

If you have a HW2 calculator with an AMS versions greater

than 1.05 you will need to install h220xTsr by Kevin Kofler

before Complete if you have not used the HW2 patch. You

can get it from or from Kevin Kofler's website

(see his event hook uninstaller read me included in this

zip file.)

An exepacked version of Complete is also included. If you

wish to use it you will need the program ttstart. The .89z

version of Complete is NOT the launcher for the exepacked


I consider it silly for there to be hundreds of custom exepact

launchers floating around when it is much smaller to make one

basic program that launches the compressed program with ttstart.



To uninstall Complete (why uninstall it?), use the included

event hook uninstaller by Kevin Kofler. If you are not

already familiar with the uninstaller then be sure to read

the event hook uninstaller documentation included and know

that it has it's own license.



The idea is simple: the user types letters of commands

and will receive back a menu of how the command could

be completed. If you look at the menu you will see a

function key in front of each option. Pressing the

function key causes the text behind it to be pasted to

the entry line.

Though really you will have to play around with it

to get the feeling of it.



If the menu is visible then it pastes the

corresponding text into the entry line.

If you press a function key that has no corresponding

text nothing will happen.

If the menu is not visible (such as by pressing

escape) then the function keys will drive the

home screen toolbar.



Diamond + function keys will only work for f1-f5

on the 89. And While the menu is visible they will

override the existing diamond + Function key results.

So what does it do? If the corresponding string is

a variable name then that string is set as the

current folder, the part of the folder name that you

had already partially typed is deleted, and you instantly

receive a menu of all the variables in the new current


It is supposed to be like pressing a function key

with a folder associated with it in the famous RPN

program for the 89 (download area of

or the 49g.



If the menu is visible then it will scroll

through up to 12 pages of possible options to


If you can scroll up then an upward pointing arrow

is in place of the 1 of the "F1:" label. And if

the menu can be scrolled down then a downward

pointing arrow is in place of the 8 of the "F8:"


When scrolling up and down the menu will wrap. The

arrows do not depict this however.



If this is the first character of a variable name

then it activates the unit menu.



If a character is typed it does searching and if

any possible matches are found then the menu is

displayed with those matches. The "_" character

has special functionality.

If no matches are found then the menu is gotten rid

of, if it was already displayed. And entire matches

are ignored.

Typing more characters will narrow down the search

to strings starting with only those chars.



If a unit menu is active then it scrolls between

the different types of units like distance and speed.

If you scroll past the last unit menu (which actually

contains no units) then it wraps to the first unit


If a normal menu is available then these keys will

move between 3 "pages." The default page has stuff

from the external databases, folder names and names of

variables in current folder.

From this page if you press right then you get a

listing of just the names of folders and names of

variables in the current folder. Pressing left

will take you to the listing of system variables.

From these two pages you can use the arrows to go back

to the default page and from there to the other page.

If you can press right to get just the folders and

variables listed, then a right arrow will be printed

in the title bar.



Backspace will remove the last letter entered and

will un-narrow the search. If all letters are taken

away from the command being entered then the menu

will disappear.

2ND + Right


This only has functionality during a unit menu. It

causes the menu to scroll right 7 times to bypass

the unit titles that have been printed in the status

line. If you go too far right it will wrap around.

If this combo is pressed during the the normal menu

it will be treated like any other key.



This only has functionality on the 92+. It makes

diamond + space = Right Arrow. Why is this useful?

If you have text pasted and highlighted and you want

to keep the highlighted text then you need to press

the right arrow. Or if the menu is visible and you

want only variables to be listed then you can press

diamond + space instead of the right arrow.

So you do not have to stretch your hand up to the


If the menu is visible then diamond + space is equal

to the key that you assigned to be the right key with


If the menu is not visible then diamond + space will

always be the right arrow key, regardless of the setting

in cmpltdat.



If any of the other keys are pressed it assumes that

the user is no longer interested in the command that

is being typed so my menu will disappear.

My menu will come back up when the user starts to

type again.



Diamond + space is still equivalent to the right arrow on the

92+ whether or not the menu is visible. These key combos are

used to provide even quicker access to variables.



It results in an instant menu of all system

variables. From this menu you can scroll right to

the menu of commands and from the menu of commands

to the menu with only folders and variables.

There is sort of a bug in complete here: If you

change to the menu with only commands in it, there

will be no right arrow in the title indicating that

the menu can be scrolled right to the folders and




It will result in an instant menu containing all

variables in the current folder.

2ND + UP:


This is like the up directory key on my 49g. All it

does is make the current folder: main\



Complete will also offer suggestions for folders and other

variable names. These suggestions will be listed last

after the other suggestions. Folder suggestions will be

listed before variable suggestions. To instantly skip to

the folders and variables just press the right arrow. This

key can be changed with the use of cmpltdat.89z

Folders will have a '\' after them and programs (basic and

assembly) will have a '(' after them. Other file types

will have a letter after them which tells you their file

type, this letter will not be pasted. Also assembly and

basic programs do not have a letter after them; this is


Letter File Type


E Expression

S String

D Data

L List

M(up case) Matrix

m(low case) Macro, although only the 92+ has this

G Graph Database

P Picture

T Text

F Figure, again it is the 92+ that has this.

O Other

Complete also has special behavior with folders. If you auto complete

a folder name then you instantly get a menu with only variables in

that folder. And if you type stuff behind a folder name already in

the entry line (not necessarily an auto completed folder name) then

complete will only give you suggestions of variables in that folder.

See examples in "things to try.txt"



As noted above, if a variable is STARTED with an underscore

then the unit menu is active. The unit menu is just like

a normal menu except that the unit type is printed in the

title line AND the right and left arrows change the unit

type. In addition to the unit menu there is an outright

replacement for tios’s unit menu that you get by pressing 2nd+


The partial titles of the next six menu titles are printed

in the help line. If you do not see the unit type you

want press 2nd + right to bypass all of them. When you do

see the unit type you want then use the right arrow to

scroll to it.

The last three unit menus as you scroll right are "fake."

The first "fake" unit menu contains the names of complete's

variables. The 2nd "fake" unit menu will have all the

variables in the vat that start with an underscore. The

third will have external strings from the external database

_xtrast1, but not from _xtrast2.

If you continue to type stuff after the underscore, and

complete can not find a match in the current unit type, then

complete will repeatedly change the unit type till a match

is found or it exhausts all the unit types. Automatic

changing of the unit type is the same as if you had manually

scrolled right. If you manually change the unit type with

the arrows it skips the unit types for which there are no

matches. The result of this could be circular:

E.G. type "_x" and the fake unit menu that has Complete's

variables in it will be visible. Then try to scroll right

or left, there are no matches in any other unit type and

the result is that it comes right back to the unit menu

containg complete's variables.

E.G. type "_c" then use the arrows to scroll and it will

only scroll to the unit types that have a match for the

"_c". This is an example where it is not circular.

The constants unit menu contains extra text to help remember what

each constant is. The 49g has this in it's constant library, which

is full screen, so the extra text is not abbreviated like it is in


The shortcuts provided in the replacement of tios’s unit menu are

available during the unit menu: press apps to get the listing of

shortcuts and then press the corresponding shortcut key. F1-f8 do

not jump you to the unit type behind them. And if you press a non-

shortcut key then the menu will revert back to the previous unit type.



The system variable support is designed so that the user has

quick access to the system variables, without the system

variables actually being in the main menu.

If the system variables appeared in the main menu there would

be too many objects in the menu, so it would feel cramped and

I would not like that. (If you the user want a system variable

to appear in the main menu then put it in an external database,

which are described below.)

So to get a listing of the system variables that can be auto

completed, (based on what you already have typed in) merely

press the left arrow. To go back to the normal menu press

the right arrow.

Statistic system variables will be proceeded by an S character

to denote that they are a statistics variable.

Also if you type some characters and a match can not be found

in the usual places for the normal menu, then it will

automatically try to find a system variable match. For example

if you type a 'z' you would probably have a menu with 'zeroes('.

Then if you type a 't' it would give you a menu of 7 system

variables starting with 'zt' (assuming that there are no

variables, folders, or user defined strings that start with 'zt')

There is also an external database whose objects only appear

in the system variable menu. This database is called:

'_sysext' If you want access to some strings, but not so much

access that they clutter the main menu, then I suggest you put

such strings in here.

If you press 2nd + down in the entry line you will recieve a

menu of all system variables, the statistics system variables

will be listed first.

And in addition to having units, the unit menu replacement will

also have system variables, again the statistics variables will

be listed first.



Flash apps export functions using the following notation:


This notation is similar to how variables are referenced. The

name of the flash app is like a folder, the "." is like a "\"

and the exported function is like a variable name.

Support of flash apps functions is made to be similar to the

support of variables in the non-current folders. First type

the name of the flashapp, (Of course typing could mean auto

completing) then type the ".", you will now get a menu of

functions exported by the app. Look for the function you want

or type more chars to narrow the search.

The data of the exported functions with each app is in an external

database. The name of that external database must be the same

as the application name that is typed before the function name.

External databases are explained below.

I also suggest that you read the example in "things to try.txt"

If you did the following from the home entry line:


You will have created an external database.

And if you cleared everything out of the entry line and then typed

"us." then you would have a menu suggesting "Illinois", "Missouri",

"Michigan", and "Utah". So basically typing a "." after the name of

an external database results in a menu of all the items in that

external database.

Lucky for you this distribution includes external data bases made for

the finance, statistics, polynomial root finder applications, and the

calctools "concept" application.



Complete now provides a replacement for the tios unit menu.

This new unit menu works just like the unit menu that you

receive from Complete when you type an "_"

But this unit menu replacement is available from all tios

applications, not just the home app.

If you wish to get rid of it press escape. F1-F8 will select

the corresponding text. Up and down scroll; left and right

scroll the unit types.

It will not look for user defined units, but it will add items

from the external databases.

And there are two fake unit menus at the end: One contains

the names of complete's variables. The other has the names

of system variables.

There are shortcuts to skip around to different unit types.

If you can not remember them then press apps from the unit menu

replacement to have the shortcuts listed, from this listing you

can press a shortcut to jump to a unit type, press up or down

to scroll this listing, anything else and it goes back to a menu

of the previous unit type. Here they are:

Obvious Shortcuts:












Semi Obvious Shortcuts:


k.....Viscosity, Kinematic: Think k for kinematic

d.....Viscosity, Dynamic: Think d for dynamic

i.....Current: In equations current is refered to as I

s.....Conducance: Think s for siemens

g.....Magnetic Flux Density: Think g for gauss

w.....Magnetic flus: Think w for weber

x.....External variables: Think x for _xtrast1

n.....Amount of substance N is often used for this like in the ideal

gas law: p*v=n*r*t

q.....Charge: Q is used as charge in equations

Non Obvious Shortcuts:


y.....System Variables


^.....Acceleration: The carrot sort of looks like an A


j.....Luminous intensity




enter.....Magnetic field Strength

home......Inductance on 89

=.........Inductance on the 92+



It is easy for the user to define custom strings that they

want to appear in the menu.

Note that external databases must be kept in the main folder.

The custom strings are kept in a list variables called "_xtrast1"

and "_xtrast2". The elements will be the strings. Here is an


{"sma()","bill()","jack","samuel","{x,y}"} -> _xtrast1

Internally the above string is stored as:


So if you type an s, "samuel" will be printed before "sma()" in

the menu but if you want "sma()" to be before "samuel" then you

will have to reverse the relative positions "samuel" and "sma()"

are in the list.

Important: Only put strings as each element. And do not forget

quotes. And you can not have external strings that

start with a number, '.', '\' or the degree character.

They simply will not be recognized.

Also if there is a ':' in the string then complete behaves as

though everything after it does not exist. However the text after

the ":" will still be printed in the menu. For example "Sam:Knife"

behaves like it is just "Sam". See the constants unit menu. In fact

if you auto complete some string then complete will print in the help

line the stuff after the ':' character. All spaces immediately after

the ':' char will not be printed in the help.

NOTE: to have help printed in the help line the ':' character must be

within the first 39 characters.

The help string must be more than 1 character long else it will not

be printed.

You can also have an external database for each unit type. Each external

database for each type of unit has it's own name. So first type the "_".

Then the unit menu will appear. It would be silly to memorize these

names or always needing to look in this text file for the names, so the

last unit menu is fake and does not have units in it, instead it has all

the variable names. Very nice see?

Left/right wrapping has been implemented so to get to this menu from the

initial unit menu of constants you only have to press the left arrow three

times. You must not forget the '_' character at the beginning of each

string in the list, otherwise they will not be found as a match for the

unit that you are typing.

Variable Name Unit Type/Menu It Is Associated With


_xtrast1................Not associated with a unit type.

Items are placed in the normal menu

before the default strings.

_xtrast2................Not associated with a unit type.

Items are placed in the normal menu

after the default strings.

_sysext.................Not associated with a unit type.

Items are placed in a the system

variable menu after the default

system variable strings.


_earthcn................Earth Constants








_linten.................Luminous Intensity

_amount.................Amount of Substance






_viscok.................Viscosity, Kinematic

_viscod.................Viscosity, Dynamic


_ecurent................Electric Current






_magfstr................Magnetic Field Strength

_magflxd................Magnetic Flux Density

_magflux................Magnetic Flux




The matches will be presented in the following order:

-Matches from the external database _xtrast1.

-Matches from the default database: cmpltdat.

-Matches from the external database _xtrast2.

-Folder names.

-Names of variables in the current folder.

If no matches are found in these five places then it looks

through the default database of system variables.

If you want to instantly have a list of folders followed by

variables then press the right arrow. If you want to go back

to the commands then press the left arrow.

And if a unit menu is visible then just the units are displayed

followed by the custom units of that particular unit menu.



-In the unit menu replacement I did not provide a shortcut

to the earth constants.

-Complete will not paste more than 39 characters at once.

This does not mean that strings in the external database

are limited to 39 characters. You can still have extra

characters behind the ':' that you wish to be printed in

the help line.

And though it will paste no more than 39 characters, if you do

not choose the string you want within the typing the first 8

characters of it, complete will stop trying to give sugestions.

Complete is only intended to aid in the typing of expression,

nothing more.

-Do not expect complete to function correctly with char(1).

-If Complete does a search and finds no matches the menu will

be removed. This is very logical but suppose you had a menu of

commands starting with "z", and pressed right to get only the

folders and variables that started with "z". If there are no

variables that start with "z" there will be no matches and thus

the menu will disappear.

-Entire matches will not be given as an option.

-It will prevent user strings from being wider than the menu but

it does this calculation based on the number of characters, not

the actual width (remember small font is proportional) so even

if there is still room to display a string, it might still be

truncated and ellipses will be appended.

-If no menu is visible when a key is pressed complete will gather

characters between the cursor and the first "separation

character" that comes before the cursor. If there are more than

8 characters between the cursor and the "separation character"

then complete will not bother to give any suggestions.

Separation characters are characters which commands can possibly

come after. Here are the easily typed ones:

"{}()[]+-/*= ,'%&#!;:

Tios treats stuff after pi, e, i, and infinity as implied multiplication

so I made them separation characters. The unit conversion character by

itself is an operator like '+' so I made it a separation character.

-It is possible to have an item in an external file start with one

of these separation characters. For example if you had "{x,y}"

in _xtrast1 and you had typed: "solve(8x=y and y=x^3,{" then you

would have a menu with {x,y} in it regardless of the "{" being one

of those separation characters.

Another example of this are the default strings that start with the

conversion character. If you type it then you get a menu suggesting

the different conversions. If you then typed an underscore the menu

changes to contain units. If the conversion char was not a separation

character then it would search for ">_" and no unit results would be

found. And you want units because obviously you are doing a conversion.

-It does not do the automatic paste and highlight thing if the one

item is a unit menu, the one thing in the menu is a name of a folder,

backspace was just pressed, or only one character has been entered (so

if you type x you probably only want to use it as a variable and not

have "xor ") This is deliberate.

-When it does initial processing, like looking for a separation

character before the cursor, it does not consider the characters

after the cursor. I think this is good, because then it will

give completion suggestions for commands that you might be trying

to insert.

-It will not offer completion suggestions for strings starting with




I have decided not to add functionality with other apps: There

is too much dependency on the home text edit structure.

User defined unit types.

Better support for other file extensions.

I am also thinking that F of the function key labels before each

string in the pop up is unnecessary so I might get rid of them.

Maybe a replacement for tios's recall box.
