Are you autocompleting the file *names*, or functions,
variable names, etc., inside those files?

I can't say I recommend autocompletion, in either
case. It doesn't save you time, is my experience,
instead it makes for a bumpy ride - it is
error-prone. There is always this programmer -
frustrated, hitting everything in sight, jumping up and
down trying to "save time" (I'm not saying you are like
this, I have never seen you - just saying it is common
computer character) - and they always hammer the
keyboard like it is a drumset. I think it is much
better to learn to *type*, and then to keep the modules
neat and files small, and to have clear, not-too-long
common names (that are easy to spell) for
everything. Only in those stinking M$ Visual Basic and
Access DB interfaces is Hungarian notation and
autocompletion perhaps just a bit usable because in
those if you setup a dialog and an "OK" button, that
creates *a zillion* items and they are impossible to
remember otherwise.

But -

For filenames, if you use Dired, check out

completion-ignored-extensions is a variable defined in
`C source code'.

Its value is (".o" "~" ".bin" ".lbin" ".so" ".a" ".ln"
".blg" ".bbl" ".elc" ".lof" ".glo" ".idx" ".lot"
".svn/" ".hg/" ".git/" ".bzr/" "CVS/" "_darcs/" "_MTN/"

Documentation: Completion ignores file names ending in
any string in this list.  It does not ignore them if
all possible completions end in one of these strings or
when displaying a list of completions.  It ignores
directory names if they match any string in this list
which ends in a slash.
