Patch to enable close-after-select functionality
I like to use Catfish as a way to find and open files. It's easier
to search for "xyz.txt" than it is to actually remember where I put
xyz.txt. The downside is that Catfish stays open while I'm editing
xyz.txt, leading to me having several Catfish windows in the back-
ground that I then have to close manually. This patch adds a new
option to close immediately after opening a file.
It is also hosted on GitHub at Michaelkielstra/Catfish.
I came searching to open a feature request for the exact same functionality!
I have been using catfish for a few months with pretty much the same usecase as OP, and the only improvement I can think of is the one added by this feature request/merge request.
Looking forward to seeing the code contributed by @pmkielstra merged sometime soon
I'm open to including this feature, but the patch does not currently apply to git master. Can you rebase it on master and resubmit? Thanks!

The same patch, but rebased to master. (Also, by default, close-after-select is False, so users don't suddenly get new behaviour after updating.)

Michael Kielstra referenced this bugreport in commit e0ae1828ae434ea76a4c1b2919b8a5812da14723
Added close-after-select functionality and rebased to current master (Bug #14888)
Your patch works like a charm! Applied above.
