Emacs: find-file-from-selection #commandline #emacs #programming #ui #x

Tired of having to select exactly the part of a warning- or error message in the terminal, or a log file, and then pasting it into the mini-buffer in Emacs to open the file?

Help is here - find-file-from-selection lets you simply select the line containing the information with your mouse, and with one keystroke Emacs tries to find the file, and jumps to the line/column in the message, if present.

Here is a quick demo:

Give it a whirl and let me know how it works for you!
