search-region

Search for text only in the current region.

This command begins a search that is restricted to the region between point and mark. It works with rectangular and line regions too. Epsilon will highlight the region until the command ends.

This command is a variation on the incremental-search command, and all its special keys operate as usual. In particular, you can use Ctrl-R and Ctrl-S to change the direction of the search.

You can set the search-in-region variable to make this type of restricted search happen whenever you highlight a region and then search using the usual search commands.
