Touch selection with a selected path

Hi all,

I appreciate the "Touch selection" feature but I miss a lot the possibility of having a touch selection based on a selected path (not a new request : see this old post : http://inkscape.13.x6.nabble.com/NEW-to ... 72995.html ).

Before trying to program something in Python (my skills in this domain are quite limited), I wanted to understand the algorithms used in selection code. I didn't find an extension dealing with that and I don't even know how to get access to the inkscape code of a given feature.

Any help would be welcome !

Now that extensions keep the selection (I have no idea how the selected objects are determined, though), this could be possible with an extension (probably not, though).

I suspect you need to learn to program C++ if you want to add a feature like that.
