Emacs auto-completing functions in C, etc
I love emacs. However, I can't remember the function declarations for many of the built-in C functions (ie those in stdio and stdlib headers)
In microsoft's ide for example, when you start typing a function, say "strtok", a little popup window shows the arguments that strtok takes. How can you do this in emacs? I have tried searching and im sorry if this has been asked thousands of times. I found something about TAGS but I think its a little cumbersome and overly complicated for what I am looking for. I saw something about a stupid Speedbar but i hate using a mouse. Someone help!
By the way - don't leave me hanging like this guy: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...ocomplete.html
