Not sure what you mean. A file selected in the Finder? In TextMate's

When you type a closing bracket, the opening bracket will flash, but
it happens quick and in many cases, the match is off-screen, which
doesn't help you much. An alternative that a lot of us use is to
place the cursor inside the brackets somewhere (but not inside any
sub-brackets) and hit ⇧⌘B (Edit → Select → Enclosing
Brackets). If you want to jump to the beginning or end of the
resulting selection, just hit ← or →.

This has been answered in the past, but I don't remember because it
never bothered me. If you search the list archives, you should find it.

Hit ⌃S again (and again and again if needed).

Check out the Math bundle. Most operations can be called with ⌃⇧C.

Not that I know of, but someone else can chime in if they have any
I didn't "switch" to Apple... my OS did.
