Select_Word_or_Enclosed.bsh v1.0 by Tomek Peszor
Submitted by takeshin on Wednesday, 2 July, 2008 - 12:16
This macro is ment for fast selecting text with one keyboard shortcut. It selects word when no selection is set. When selection is set (second run), it looks outside selection for pairs of characters like parenthesis ()[]{}<> or quotations "" '' or line separator and selects text beetween. Just assign shortcut to this macro (I use CTRL+ALT+UP ARROW) and you are able to select word no matter if caret is on the begginig, inside or at the end of word. Then hit this keyboard shortcut again to select text between characters described above. Hit once more to extend selection to select enclosing characters too, and once more to expand selection to next pairs. This macro is useful for selecting words, syntax keywords, strings, function values, HTML attribute values and many more. See it in action on the screencast.
