for some reason my code in the previous post is completely non-
functional. (i swear i used it for few months. Perhaps when i put on
the website i got smart and edited it "for the better" without
testing)

Here's the correct version:

(defun delete-enclosed-text ()
  "Delete texts between any pair of delimiters.
Note: if you have nested matching pairs, the cursor
should be inside the inner most one. Else it gets confused.
This code should to be fixed in the future."
  (interactive)
  (save-excursion
    (let (p1 p2)
      (skip-chars-backward "^(<["<<") (setq p1 (point))
      (skip-chars-forward "^)>]">>") (setq p2 (point))
      (delete-region p1 p2)
    )
  )
)
