=== What steps will reproduce the problem (please be specific and use wikiformatting)? ===

For example:

   scala> List( 1, 2, 3 ).redu<tab>

=== What is the expected behavior? ===

I should see the following options:

   reduceLeft          reduceLeftOption    reduceRight         reduceRightOption

=== What do you see instead? ===

   <console>:1: error: illegal start of definition

=== What versions of the following are you using? ===

  • Scala: 2.8.1 and 2.9.0.RC1
  • Java: 1.6.0_20

On 2.10.0.r24908-b20110508020204 too. Actually this one exists for a long time already.

Array(1,2,3) has the same problem.

This is fixed in the Ammonite REPL

@ List( 1, 2, 3 ).reduce<TAB>
reduce              reduceLeft          reduceLeftOption    reduceOption        reduceRight
@ List( 1, 2, 3 ).reduce
