    I love selecting long file paths in a console window by double-clicking
    them. At work, with Linux, I get the whole path. In the Mac OS X
    Terminal app, the forward slash (/) acts as a word delimiter, so I only
    get a single file or directory name. Does anyone know how to customize
    this behavior? Thanks in advance.

    I forget which flavour of Linux was concerned, but I found a way there
    to customize the delimiters for this purpose,and it was most

    Does anyone know how to customize the delimiters here on OSX?

    To answer my own question, partially at least, iTerm allows you to
    specify "Characters considered part of a word" - it's in Preferences >

    Maybe you want to look at iTerm. It allows you to specify the
    word delimiters in preferences.
