When I'm in a multi-pane tmux window, on the leftmost pane, pressing my shortcut to move to the pane to the left will cyclically move the focus to the rightmost pane. I would prefer this shortcut to take no action in this case, i.e., to stay in the already selected leftmost pane.

I read the man page. There is also a chapter about pane traversal in the The Tao of Tmux book, but this is not mentioned.

The select-pane command in tmux has a lot of switches, but they are not documented:

$ tmux select-pane --help
usage: select-pane [-DdegLlMmRU] [-P style] [-T title] [-t target-pane]

In case it's relevant, my shortcuts to select the panes are as follows:

bind -n C-M-h select-pane -L
bind -n C-M-j select-pane -D
bind -n C-M-k select-pane -U
bind -n C-M-l select-pane -R
