No prob: the best way to find these things is with apropos, either
"M-x apropos RET regex" or bind it to a key.  I have it bound to f3.
You can search by regular expression or a word list (e.g. "inferior
lisp program").  This will give you a list of potential items, and
each one gives you the variable/function's documentation, and then
tells you if you can customize it.  I used to think of only using
Customize to set variables, because I didn't know how to find them;
apropos is the way.
