Using vim-surround With A Visual Selection

The vim-surround plugin allows you to do a variety of actions that have to do with the surrounding characters of text objects.

The S keystroke allows you to surround a visual selection with the following character.

First, make a visual selection. Then hit S. Then hit a surround character such as ( or [ and the area of text that has been visually selected will be wrapped with the respective surround characters.
