Can anyone please explain why left mouse triple-click is not selecting lines for me in
To be specfic it sometimes works, but it depends on the nature of the text I'm selecting.
For example, if I triple-click on the output from
ls -l (example below) it works as I'd expect and extends the selection to the whole line.
drwx------ 2 john john 4.0K Apr 10 13:52 vFaheu1/ drwx------ 2 john john 4.0K Apr 7 22:34 vgtsglC/ drwx------ 2 john john 4.0K Apr 10 14:09 vKYxAOy/ drwx------ 2 john john 4.0K Apr 9 15:13 vrnQIUR/
BUT if I triple-click on the output below I get different behaviour depending on where I click:
[GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-4)] on linux2
If I put the mouse locator over the
Red hat I have to
click 6 times (in close succession) to select the whole line. Here's the text I see selected after each click:
- no text selected
Red Hat 4.8.5-4
GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-4)
- the whole line
Basically, it seems that
rxvt is "intelligently" deciding how to extend
the selection depending on the context around the text (e.g. parentheses or brackets).
I'd like to turn this feature off if possible and just have triple-click select the whole line.
I've tried the following, to no avail:
-pe ""to turn off perl extensions
-tcw(i.e. without or with
