Why not add an extra argument so the user can decide for him/herself? By default, I would prefer the first option.

That might be an option for 2.0, and FWIW you can override the key functions in the current release to provide any kind of handling you want.

I believe we should keep it the way it is and maybe add a derived class for editing 'program code' that also looks for typical programmers characters (Fl_Code_Editor?). While we are at it, we could derive further and add a C editor (Fl_LangC_Editor) with syntax highlighting (although that should probably not be part of the regular library). Just a thought.

I agree. The best approach would be to let the user decide what he wants the delimeters to be.

The default behavior should mimic the generally excepted behavior. Compare to Microsoft's Ctrl+->, VIM, etc. I believe they use first non-whitespace. Of course, letting the user have options beyond that is always a good idea.
