Hello Carsten,

The module is a prompt, like Prompt.Shell, where you can change
between more prompts ("modes"). Currently there are 4 modes:

 - search hoogle (requires local install). It opens a haddock
documentation on a browser.
 - search files with locate. It opens a file with a desired program,
depending on its extension.
 - search files with locate --regexp. Like the one above, but
autocompletion takes regex.
 - calculator (requires `calc` installed), only autocompletes
arithmetic expressions.

If you would like to try it, you can check the usage notes in the
haddock documentation, which I'm attaching

By the way I think I fixed the bug with alwaysHighlight. I will send
it now to the list, I hope everything works for you now.
