Uses per-line display filtering (on_line_update) to underline text
matching a certain pattern and make it clickable. When clicked with the
mouse button specified in the matcher.button resource (default 2, or
middle), the program specified in the matcher.launcher resource
(default, the url-launcher resource, sensible-browser) will be started
with the matched text as first argument. The default configuration is
suitable for matching URLs and launching a web browser, like the
former mark-urls extension.
The default pattern to match URLs can be overridden with the
matcher.pattern.0 resource, and additional patterns can be specified
with numbered patterns, in a manner similar to the selection extension.
The launcher can also be overridden on a per-pattern basis.
It is possible to activate the most recently seen match or a list of matches
from the keyboard. Simply bind a keysym to matcher:last or
matcher:list as seen in the example below.
The matcher:select action enables a mode in which it is possible to
iterate over the matches using the keyboard and either activate them
or copy them to the clipboard. While the mode is active, normal terminal
input/output is suspended and the following bindings are recognized:
It is also possible to cycle through the matches using a key
combination bound to the matcher:select action.
Search for a match upwards.
Search for a match downwards.
Jump to the topmost match.
Jump to the bottommost match.
Leave the mode and return to the point where search was started.
Activate the current match.
Copy the current match to the clipboard.
Example: load and use the matcher extension with defaults.
Example: use a custom configuration.
