window_search_forward

# $EPIC: window_search_forward.txt,v 1.3 2006/08/20 18:32:13 sthalik Exp $

Synopsis:

window search_forward “[<regex>]”

Description:

This operation moves the scrollback view forwards (newer) so the top of the window is the next newer line that matches the regex <regex>. If there are no matches going forwards, it will beep. If you omit <regex> it will re-use the last <regex> you provided to either search_back or search_forward.

This operation may put you in scrollback view, which means you need to use window scroll_end to go back to the normal scrolling view.

You can read the window help file for more information about views.

Examples:

/WINDOW SCROLL_START
/WINDOW SEARCH_FORWARD "frob$"
/WINDOW SEARCH_FORWARD 			(to repeat the search)
/WINDOW SCROLL_END				(when you are done)

History:

This operation first appeared in EPIC4-1.1.8
