Suppose my point is currently on or next to a opening or closing paren, brace or bracket. How can I jump to the respective matching counterpart?
As mentioned in emacs wiki (http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/NavigatingParentheses):
C-M-nforward-list Move forward over a parenthetical group
C-M-pbackward-list Move backward over a parenthetical group
C-M-fforward-sexp Move forward over a balanced expression
C-M-bbackward-sexp Move backward over a balanced expression
C-M-kkill-sexp Kill balanced expression forward
C-M-SPCmark-sexp Put the mark at the end of the sexp.
