       selection-autotransform - automatically transform select text


       This selection allows you to do automatic transforms on a selection whenever a selection
       is made.

       It works by specifying perl snippets (most useful is a single "s///" operator) that modify
       $_ as resources:

          URxvt.selection-autotransform.0: transform
          URxvt.selection-autotransform.1: transform

       For example, the following will transform selections of the form "filename:number", often
       seen in compiler messages, into "vi +$filename $word":

          URxvt.selection-autotransform.0: s/^([^:[:space:]]+):(\\d+):?$/vi +$2 \\Q$1\\E\\x0d/

       And this example matches the same,but replaces it with vi-commands you can paste directly
       into your (vi :) editor:

          URxvt.selection-autotransform.0: s/^([^:[:space:]]+(\\d+):?$/:e \\Q$1\\E\\x0d:$2\\x0d/

       Of course, this can be modified to suit your needs and your editor :)

       To expand the example above to typical perl error messages ("XXX at FILENAME line YYY."),
       you need a slightly more elaborate solution:

          URxvt.selection.pattern-0: ( at .*? line \\d+[,.])
          URxvt.selection-autotransform.0: s/^ at (.*?) line (\\d+)[,.]$/:e \\Q$1\E\\x0d:$2\\x0d/

       The first line tells the selection code to treat the unchanging part of every error
       message as a selection pattern, and the second line transforms the message into vi
       commands to load the file.
