script type
completefunc which uses for completion all files in the current directory with the same file extension as the current file.

Requires external grep command, so Windows users have to install some port of it. (requires ``-h`` and ``-o`` non-POSIX switches, but all BSD and GNU versions of grep have them).

For example when you have per-chapter organization of novel, then this will complete using all words in the novel.
