Go to next CHAR which is similar to "f" and "t" in vim


License GPLv2 MELPA

This package defines the function iy-go-to-char which behaves like "f" in vim, and iy-go-up-to-char like "t" in vim. It reads a char and go the next Nth occurence of the char. User can continue such search using that char key.

To use, make sure this file is on your load-path and put the following in your .emacs file:

(require 'iy-go-to-char)

To make iy-go-to-char works better with multiple-cursors, add iy-go-to-char-start-pos to mc/cursor-specific-vars when mc is loaded:

(add-to-list 'mc/cursor-specific-vars 'iy-go-to-char-start-pos)

Then you can bind functions like:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c f") 'iy-go-to-char)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c F") 'iy-go-to-char-backward)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c ;") 'iy-go-to-or-up-to-continue)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c ,") 'iy-go-to-or-up-to-continue-backward)

Or if you prefer up-to (vim "t") versions:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c f") 'iy-go-up-to-char)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c F") 'iy-go-up-to-char-backward)

You also can bind go-to methods and up-to methods to different keys.

Except repeating the char key, followings keys are defined before quitting the search (which can be disabled by setting iy-go-to-char-override-local-map to nil):

X -- where X is the char to be searched. Repeating it will search forward the char. Can be disabled through iy-go-to-char-continue-when-repeating

; -- search forward the char, customizable: iy-go-to-char-key-forward, iy-go-to-char-use-key-forward

, -- search backward the char, customizable: iy-go-to-char-key-backward, iy-go-to-char-use-key-backward

C-g -- quit

C-s -- start isearch-forward using char as initial search string

C-r -- start isearch-backward using char as initial search string

C-w -- quit and kill region between start and current point. If region is activated before search, then use the original mark instead of the start position.

M-w -- quit and save region between start and current point. If region is activated before search, use the mark instead of start position.

All other keys will quit the search. Then the key event is intepreted in the original environment before search.

if the search quits because of error or using "C-g", point is set back to the start position. Otherwise, point is not change and the start position is set as marker. So you can use "C-x C-x" back to that position.

iy-go-to-char-backward search backward by default. Also the search can cross lines. To continue search last char, use iy-go-to-char-continue and iy-go-to-char-continue-backward.

Change Log

2014-10-29 (3.2.2)

  • Add options iy-go-to-char-use-key-forward, iy-go-to-char-use-key-backward and iy-go-to-char-continue-when-repeating to toggle the feature that continuing search by repeat typing a single key.
  • Add option iy-go-to-char-override-local-map to disable the temporary map after activate iy-go-to-char.

2013-04-28 (3.2.1)

  • Fix documentations.
  • Add up-to versions: iy-go-up-to-char, iy-go-up-to-char-backward, iy-go-up-to-char-continue and iy-go-up-to-char-continue-backward.

2013-04-28 (3.1)

  • Better integration with multiple-cursors.
  • Refactoring documentations.

2013-04-08 (3.0)

  • When jump is started backward (with negative parameter, or iy-go-to-char-backward). Repeating continues the search backward. Also iy-go-to-char-key-forward jumps with the same direction when jump is started, and iy-go-to-char-key-backward jumps to reverse direction.

2013-03-25 (2.1)

  • Fix a but that I forget to set mc--this-command

2013-03-25 (2.0)

  • Use overriding-local-map to setup keymap
  • multiple-cursors compatible

2012-04-16 (1.1)

  • fix C-s/C-r to enter isearch

(iy-go-to-char-kill-region)

Kill region between jump start position and current position.

(iy-go-to-char-kill-ring-save)

Save region between jump start position and current position.

(iy-go-to-char N CHAR)

Move forward to N occurrences of CHAR.

Uses keymap iy-go-to-char-keymap, which is not currently defined.

Typing key of CHAR will move to the next occurence of CHAR.

Typing iy-go-to-char-key-forward will move to the next occurence of CHAR.

Typing iy-go-to-char-key-backward, will move to the previous occurence of CHAR.

Typing M-x iy-go-to-char-quit will quit and return to the original point.

Typing M-x iy-go-to-char-isearch or M-x iy-go-to-char-isearch-backward] will start isearch using CHAR.

Typing M-x iy-go-to-char-kill-region or M-x iy-go-to-char-kill-ring-save will kill/copy between current point and the start point.

Unless quit using M-x iy-go-to-char-quit or the region is activated before searching, the start point is set as mark.

(iy-go-to-char-backward N CHAR)

Move backward to N occurence of CHAR.

Uses keymap iy-go-to-char-keymap, which is not currently defined.

Typing key of CHAR will move to the previous occurence of CHAR.

Typing iy-go-to-char-key-forward moves to the next occurrence of CHAR.

Typing iy-go-to-char-key-backward, moves to the previous occurrence of CHAR.

Typing M-x iy-go-to-char-quit will quit and return to the original point.

Typing M-x iy-go-to-char-isearch or M-x iy-go-to-char-isearch-backward] will start isearch using CHAR.

(iy-go-up-to-char N CHAR)

Move forward to N occurrences of CHAR. Like iy-go-to-char but jump up to the CHAR so it is not included in the region between search start position and current point.

(iy-go-up-to-char-backward N CHAR)

Move backward to N occurrences of CHAR. Like iy-go-to-char-backward but jump up to the CHAR so it is not included in the region between search start position and current point.

(iy-go-to-or-up-to-continue N &optional STOP-POSITION)

Continue last iy-go-to-char or iy-go-to-char-backward by N steps. Set STOP-POSITION to overwrite the last used stop position strategy.

(iy-go-to-or-up-to-continue-backward N &optional STOP-POSITION)

Continue last iy-go-to-char or iy-go-to-char-backward by N steps. Set STOP-POSITION to overwrite the last used stop position strategy.

(iy-go-to-char-continue N)

Continue last iy-go-to-char or iy-go-to-char-backward by N steps.

(iy-go-to-char-continue-backward N)

Continue last iy-go-to-char or iy-go-to-char-backward by N steps.

(iy-go-up-to-char-continue N)
