implement mouse copy

Reported by: rme Owned by: rme
Priority: major Milestone: Cocoa IDE v?
Component: IDE Version: 1.1
Keywords: Cc: p2.edoc@…

Description

With 'Mouse Copy' one can click on Lisp expressions (in some non-key window, without making the window key) and they get inserted at the current point. If there is a selection, it will be replaced with the Lisp expression.

MCL uses Command-Click.

For example you can click on

  • an open parentheses and the whole S-Expression will be copied
  • a symbol and the symbol will be copied
  • the 'current expression' (number, character, string, ...) and it will be copied

Also nice to have

  • a semicolon and the whole comment to the end of line will be copied

This enhancement is (and long had been) extremely high on my wish list for the CCL IDE.

I, and some colleagues, would really like to be able to use mouse-copy again. It is a huge help for coding productivity and also bug (typo) reduction.
