This may be a plugin/editor specific question, but I'm wondering if there is a way to select column 4-10 rows 1-10, for example in any editor or some editors within Eclipse?

Note: this can be done with Notepad++ and Vim for example.

As of Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo), you can enter rectangular selection mode by pressing Alt+Shift+A.
