Contributor - Completion improvements
The completion in Scilab could be improved in different ways.
1. A list of supported syntaxes could be displayed when the name of a Scilab function is detected.
This may be implemented first in the Scinotes editor, as it is available in the Notepad++ external editor Such an implementation is possible without enriching the Scilab manual.
2. When doing the completion, the information about the profile of the function could be detailed. Information are already available in the Scilab documentation.
For example: completion.png The description of the function could be even added. Or information about the variable (size, type, etc). But this would require some changes in the documentation.
3. A contextual completion could be proposed. This would display some elements in priority (for example, completion on file / directory are usually expecting files).
