31. Advanced Highlighting of Matching Parentheses

Load this file, activate it and Emacs will display highlighting on whatever parenthesis (and paired delimiter if you like this) matches the one before or after point. This is an extension to the paren.el file distributed with Emacs. The default behaviour is similar to paren.el but more sophisticated. Normally you can try all default settings to enjoy mic-paren.

Or - if you are a LaTeX writer like the current maintainer - try the following additional setup in your initialization file:

  ;; In LaTeX-mode we want this
  (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook
            (function (lambda ()
                        (paren-toggle-matching-quoted-paren 1)
                        (paren-toggle-matching-paired-delimiter 1))))

Or - if you are programming in C like languages - try also:

  (add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook
            (function (lambda ()
                         (paren-toggle-open-paren-context 1))))

`mic-paren.el' is an extension and replacement to the packages `paren.el' and `stig-paren.el' for Emacs. When mic-paren is active Emacs normal parenthesis matching is deactivated. Instead parenthesis matching will be performed as soon as the cursor is positioned at a parenthesis. The matching parenthesis (or the entire expression between the parentheses) is highlighted until the cursor is moved away from the parenthesis.

Features include:

To configure this package, type:

  M-x customize-group RET mic-paren-matching RET
