> C-s runs the command isearch-forward

> It is bound to C-s.
> (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 last input item 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 next word or character in buffer
>   onto the end of the search string, and search for it.
> Type C-M-w to delete character from end of search string.
> Type C-M-y to yank char 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.
> If you try to exit with the search string still empty, it invokes
>  nonincremental search.
> Type M-% to start `query-replace' with string to replace from last search 
> string.
> Type C-M-% to start `query-replace-regexp' with string to replace from last 
> search string.
> 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.
> If an input method is turned on in the current buffer, that input
> method is also active while you are typing characters to search.  To
