Perl sigils: select sigils as part of variable with Double Click and Shift+Left/Right Arrows
Let consider Perl code like:
$var_name = 5;
@var_name =(1, 5);
%var_name = (a => 5);
$coderef = &var_name;
As for now when I double click on ‘var_name’ NPP selects ‘var_name’ part of line only, but not $@%& symbols.
If I try to select ‘var_name’ by pressing ‘Shift+ Left Arrow’ when cursor at the end (or just after) of the ‘var_name’ NPP also selects
only part of the string without $@%& symbols.
Is it possible to configure NPP to select $@%& symbols as a part of the identifier (word) for specific languages, not globally?
And why separately? Are they interfering?
Where you say “Shift+Arrow” don’t you mean “Shift+Ctrl+Arrow”?
Maybe the following will help you:
Invoke Settings menu and choose Preferences…, then:
In the screenshot I only added
$…add others as you like.
Your advice helped.
