I modified my function and mappings to the following:
let flags = ''
if a:direction < 0
let flags = flags . 'b'
let ntimes = max([v:count, 1])
let i = 1
while i <= ntimes
let i = i + 1
let curr_line = getline('.')
let spattern = '^[^' . curr_line . '][^' . curr_line . ']'
call search(spattern, flags)
if a:direction == 2
if a:direction == -2
nnoremap ,n :<C-U>call JumpToNextNonMatching(1)<CR>
nnoremap ,N :<C-U>call JumpToNextNonMatching(-1)<CR>
vnoremap ,n :<C-U>call JumpToNextNonMatching(2)<CR>gv
vnoremap ,N :<C-U>call JumpToNextNonMatching(-2)<CR>gv
This almost works, if I am moving backwards it progressively increases the visual selected area, but if I am moving forward the visually selected area remains the same because it seems that `gv` brings the cursor back to the beginning of the selection...
Any idea on how to make this work also for the forward movement?
