wezterm.permute_any_or_no_mods(table)

Since: 20201031-154415-9614e117

This function is intended to help with generating key or mouse binding entries that should apply regardless of the combination of modifier keys pressed.

For each combination of modifiers CTRL, ALT, SHIFT and SUPER, the supplied table value is copied and has mods = <value> set into the copy.

In addition, an entry for NONE is generated (this is the only difference between permute_any_mods and permute_any_or_no_mods).

An array holding all of those combinations is returned.

If this is your only binding, or it is the last binding, the resulting array can be unpacked into a lua table initializer and used like this:

local wezterm = require 'wezterm';

return {
  mouse_bindings = {
    table.unpack(wezterm.permute_any_or_no_mods({
      event={Down={streak=1, button="Middle"}},
      action="PastePrimarySelection"
    }))
  }
}

(and if you have other bindings before and/or after, use a for loop to iterate and add each binding to your bindings table)

This is equivalent to writing this out, but is much less verbose:

return {
  mouse_bindings = {
        {
            action= "PastePrimarySelection",
            event = {
                Down = {
                    button = "Middle",
                    streak = 1,
                },
            },
            mods = "NONE",
        },
        {
            action = "PastePrimarySelection",
            event = {
                Down = {
                    button = "Middle",
                    streak = 1,
                },
            },
            mods = "SUPER",
        },
        {
