find-delimiter

Show the matching left delimiter.  Alt-)

This command shows the left parenthesis, square bracket, brace, or similar delimiter in a balanced expression. (Each mode defines its own list of delimiters used in that language.) It invokes backward-level, displays this location, pauses, and then returns point to its original location. Note that the cursor must appear after a right delimiter, not on it, to show the match for that delimiter.

You may change the length of time that this command pauses at the left delimiter by setting the variables near-pause and far-pause. The former specifies how long to pause (in hundredths of a second) if the left delimiter appeared in the window originally. The latter specifies how long to pause otherwise.

Regardless of the length of the pause, the pausing stops when you press a key.
