thing-boundary-alist.  Thing-boundary-alist is a list of pairs of the
form (SYNTAX-CHAR FUNCTION) where FUNCTION takes a single position
argument and returns a cons of places (start end) representing
boundaries of the thing at that position.

Typically:
 Left or right Paren syntax indicates an s-expression.
 The end of a line marks the line including a trailing newline.
 Word syntax indicates current word.
 Symbol syntax indicates symbol.
 If it doesn't recognize one of these it selects just the character HERE.

If an error occurs  during syntax scanning, the function just prints a
message and returns `nil'."

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
