;;; cc-mode-expansions.el --- C-specific expansions for expand-region
;; Copyright (C) 2012 François Févotte

;;; Commentary:
;; Extra expansions for C-like modes that I've found useful so far:
;; er/c-mark-statement
;; Captures simple and more complex statements.
;; er/c-mark-fully-qualified-name
;; Captures identifiers composed of several '::'-separated parts.
;; er/c-mark-function-call[-1|-2]
;; Captures an identifier followed by a '()'-enclosed block.
;; er/c-mark-statement-block[-1|-2]
;; Captures a statement followed by a '{}'-enclosed block.
;; This matches function definitions and if/for/... constructs.
;; er/c-mark-vector-access[-1|-2]
;; Captures an identifier followed by a '[]'-enclosed block.
;; Feel free to contribute any other expansions for C at
