I just wanted to mention that Thomas has opened an RFE to allow

For those who would like that alternative to Alt-F7 and Alt-F8 for line
selection, please go ahead and vote.

I strongly favour this!

The Alt-L etc line selection come from the Lpex heritage and are quite
useful for line oriented actions. This is certainly more prevalent with
fixed column code, but with fully free RPG source, we are moving more
towards a stream file world.

I love the ideas that surface on this list, and I puttered around with a
skeleton of a plug-in to do this myself. I sort of thought I'd
'convert' the stream selection to a line selection and work on the block
that way.

1) Define a stream selection
2) Assuming (ha!) the cursor is at the last line, find the extent of the
selection
a) last_line = query line;
b) block find;
c) first_line = query line;
3) Establish a new, line selection over the same lines
a) locate line first_line;
b) block set element;
c) locate line last_line;
c) block set element;
4) Shift the lines one 'indent' increment
a) block shift right 2;
5) De-select
a) block clear;

I'm having issues with RDi not resolving the org.osgi.framework, so I
must have busted something somewhere and I didn't get past this basic
outline.
