You can use code completion with CTRL-X CTRL-U. See :help 'completefunc'.
With this small script, you can complete keywords using some kind wildcards. By default '\k\zs' reg-exp is used as wildcard. Useful if you are using identifiers with mixed case, so aCN expands to anyCrazyName or anotherCodeName, but not AnotherCodeName neither BadCodeName.
