    Code:
    () = parentheses, [] = brackets, {} = braces
    Nomenclature varies. Some people refer to {}, [], and <> all as brackets. Curly brackets, square brackets, angle brackets.

    I also met one guy who called parentheses "brackets." That one was annoying.

    Success! I found it. Apparently it is Ctrl-&#229; to jump between braces and Ctrl-Shift-&#229; to also select the text(on a swedish keyboard)

    The shortcuts are called:
    Edit.GotoBrace
    Edit.GotoBraceExtend

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    I remember finding (once) a VB script which dumped the entire keymapping for visual studio.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
