on the osx command line in the default terminal application [ Version 2.11 (440) ] when terminal shows a string (so happens to be file fullpath)
and I wish to highlight the entire string (full pathname) I double click on any part of above string ... it only highlights the one word I am double clicking on
How to change terminal to highlight entire compound string interspersed with delimiters like the '/' character etc ...
normally I use Ubuntu which has below trick to define the word boundary characters in terminal
gsettings set org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Profile:/org/gnome/terminal/legacy/profiles:/:b1dcc9dd-5262-4d8d-a863-c897e6d979b9/ word-char-exceptions '@ms "-,.?%&#_+@~·/"'
where b1dcc9dd-5262-4d8d-a863-c897e6d979b9 is just my profile as retrieved using
gsettings get org.gnome.Terminal.ProfilesList default
so I believe I need the mac osx equivalent to above linux gsettings command
mac osx 11.4 Big Sur mac mini M1 2020 chip Apple M1
seems strange the default osx terminal is not optimized for software engineers ;-(
I am using bash shell on osx ... for reference I also use bash on linux
