I'm actually toying with an idea that would allow this to be implemented pretty easily. That's a nice idea for the future.

This has now been partially implemented --- the name of the command can be completed by hitting TAB.

Full support for this will require redesign of the lexer, including unbuffered input, and some kind of rollback mechanism.

Use the command line completion features of GNU readline, such that when PSPP is used in interactive mode, the user can easily find the list of available commands, and the available subcommands for the current command. etc.
