https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=262090 --- Comment #2 from Ed Maste <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- Based on xterm's behaviour, with VTB_MARK_MOVE the originally selected word or line remains selected as the cursor moves before/after the selection. In VTB_MARK_EXTEND the selection is extended if the cursor is outside of the selection. If inside the selection text is unselected from the closer end. For example, consider this example, with the words in  currently selected: one [two three four five six seven eight] nine ten VTB_MARK_EXTEND on the word "four" would result in one two three [four five six seven eight] nine ten while VTB_MARK_EXTEND on "seven" would result in one [two three four five six seven] eight nine ten In contrast to VTB_MARK_MOVE the originally selected word or line will not necessarily remain selected. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
