comment Is there a way of color-highlighting paired brackets in shell (bash)?
@Zorawar Somehow I missed your comment sorry. Adding set blink-matching-paren on to my .inputrc made this work perfectly whithin R

Perfect. Do you have an idea if I could get the same behaviour within the R-console? I know that R uses readline. EDIT: @Zorawar 's link in the comment above solves this issue by adding set blink-matching-paren on in my .inputrc file

@PetrUzel: I find your solution as the potential answer. Would you mind adding it as such so we close this question?

Does anyone know if there is a specific technical term for what I called color-highlighting? Maybe with a different keyword I may be able to fins something somewhere...

Thanks, I see what you mean now and you are right. Nevertheless it is still very useful. Sometimes I am debugging some R code interactively, I need to paste some of the complex lines in the R-console and change some parameters. As R uses .inputrc I thought that I could make bash do these high-lightning and R could inherit.

Is your script executable? What happens if you change the line for :<command>sh /root/my-applications/test1.sh</command>
