It is not magic: Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting
real-time display editor. For example, `C-h k C-s' shows:
| C-s runs the command isearch-forward
| which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `isearch'.
| (isearch-forward &optional REGEXP-P NO-RECURSIVE-EDIT)
| Do incremental search forward.
| With a prefix argument, do an incremental regular expression search instead.
| As you type characters, they add to the search string and are found.
| The following non-printing keys are bound in `isearch-mode-map'.
| Type DEL to cancel characters from end of search string.
| Type RET to exit, leaving point at location found.
| Type LFD (C-j) to match end of line.
| Type C-s to search again forward, C-r to search again backward.
| Type C-w to yank word from buffer onto end of search string and search for it.
| Type C-y to yank rest of line onto end of search string and search for it.
| Type M-y to yank last killed text onto end of search string and search for it.
| Type C-q to quote control character to search for it.
| C-g while searching or when search has failed cancels input back to what has
| been found successfully.
| C-g when search is successful aborts and moves point to starting point.
| Type M-c to toggle search case-sensitivity.
| Type M-r to toggle regular-expression mode.
| Type M-e to edit the search string in the minibuffer.
| Also supported is a search ring of the previous 16 search strings.
| Type M-n to search for the next item in the search ring.
| Type M-p to search for the previous item in the search ring.
| Type M-TAB to complete the search string using the search ring.
