comment How to select block of text in xterm
Thanks I've seen those links before I posted my question and was hoping to get luckier that those guys before me. About the alternatives they present, they are not practical for me, too many steps for and operation that shouldn't take more than 3 seconds.

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.
