7.3 Searching Source Files

There are two commands for searching through the current source file for a regular expression.

forward-search regexp
search regexp

The command ‘forward-search regexp’ checks each line, starting with the one following the last line listed, for a match for regexp. It lists the line that is found. You can use the synonym ‘search regexp’ or abbreviate the command name as fo.

reverse-search regexp

The command ‘reverse-search regexp’ checks each line, starting with the one before the last line listed and going backward, for a match for regexp. It lists the line that is found. You can abbreviate this command as rev.
