It would be nice if there was a way to jump between matching control and end statements. For example, in Matlab if clicking on an "if" and the matching "end" is out of view, a popup at the bottom of the screen will show up with the matching end line that can be clicked and then jump to that line in the document. Clicking on and "end" lets you click on the matching "if" popup to jump to it.

I think another, perhaps better way to jump between the control statements (if, for, while, etc) and matching end statements is to allow a keyboard command to jump to the matching statement, just like Ctl-m allows jumping to the matching bracket in octave. I would even use Ctl-m for both jumping between matching brackets and matching control/end statements. This would allow convenient jumping to related places in the code. (This would be better than matlab because you could jump even if both statements are visible on the screen).
