I wonder if there is any package which lets me do this:

  • Hightlight entire line where point is currently located
  • If you move point away, it keeps the that line highlighted
  • Multiple lines can be highlighted in similar way
  • Clear all highlights with another command

I think this is very useful and I wonder someone would have done it already.

Edit: Adding more explanation Let's say I have a file with 10 lines, I want to highlight 3rd, 5th and 7th line. What I would like to do is, move point to those lines one by one and execute some command (let's say highlight-this-line), it should keep the past highlighted lines as highlighted until let's say clear-highlight-command is executed which should clear all highlights
