FILE is the name of a predefined structure in programming language C defined in standard header file stdio.h which must be used when working with files in C.
And many programmers use often file as name of a variable which is a pointer to a FILE structure although that's definitely not a good name, especially when auto-correct feature is enabled, too.

So if a typed word matches a word in the auto-complete list in length and case, it should be removed from the list, EXCEPT there is at least
one more word in the list with same length and same characters, but with one or more characters in other case. In this case it is better to still list also the 100% matching word in the auto-complete list.
For the example this means showing:
