Completion in the Destination Box
The destination box provides a
completion facility for people and aliases
from your .anyone file. After you type
the first few characters in someone's username or alias, pressing az
completion key (Up, Down, Shift-Up, or Shift-Down) will make xzewd
fill in the rest.
Pressing Up cycles through all the words that fit in
Pressing Down also cycles through all the words
that fit, but in reverse alphabetical order.
Holding down Shift
while pressing Up or Down causes xzewd to only consider people
currently logged in and aliases.

Say that the following people are in your .anyone file: bobby, freddy,

- xzewd would print "flippy". If you pressed Up three more
times, "flippy" would change to "freddy", then "futzy", then it would
beep (because you had cycled through all possible choices).
- xzewd would print "futzy", then, with repeated presses of
Down, "freddy", "flippy", and it would beep.
- Shift-Up or Shift-Down
- xzewd would print "flippy", then, with repeated presses,
beep. (Only flippy is logged on.)
