Semantic shines through whenever you can see emacs visibly having an idea
about the code's meaning. In this demo, it means 1) the suggestion popus
2) the second time I use `fwritex' template, in which FILE *STREAM formal
parameter is replaced by a choice of all currently visible variables of
type FILE*

"intellisense" is either 1) IntelliSense, a trademarked name for MSVS
context-sensitive completion, in which case none of the above is
intellisense 2) a generic name for a class of similarly-working packages,
in which case both are implementations of intellisense. If you want to
know the difference, download the package and read the description

Not really, I don't have the time for that now. I intend to turn it into a
properly integrated and easy to install and setup package, but it hasn't
happened yet.
