Description

Often users use standard browser search capabilities for highlighting all occurrences of pointed identifiers corresponding to, say, variable names. This is not convenient since several extra actions (copy, paste, select a highlighting option) are always required. I suggest to implement this feature for all identifiers of class SrcHlN (cross referenced identifiers that have specific connections will have other classes always).

At this point highlighting will not be semantic like at, say, https://code.woboq.org/linux/linux/net/core/dev.c.html#256str where exactly all occurrences of a given variable is shown since this needs corresponding knowledge from source code querying that is non-trivial to obtain.

This feature is necessary more and more. I am not sure whether it will not be too hard for implementation, but I suggest to automatically highlight all occurrences of selected symbols not only identifiers with some special class. If this is not hard then highlighting should include both error traces and sources simultaneously (and nothing else).

Implemented in branch "bridge-fixes". I've added a new button "Search selection" which highlights the first found word of selection (words are separated by space symbols).
