auto-complete words in all kinds of files

I would like auto-complete in all kinds of files like Ctrl-p/Ctrl-n in VIM. I miss this feature so much that I am still using VIM for all my coding works. But since I have purchased Textastic, I would like this on the development list~~ : )

Would be great, but automatically, without having to type Ctrl-p / Ctrl-n.

One of the most useful forms of completion I've found in other editors, excluding actual full code insight, is the nearest-startswith match.  Type three letters, hit escape, and it'll auto-complete the nearest word that starts with those three letters.  Keep hitting escape to cycle ever further out from the cursor.
