Search in this buffer for a pattern.
This command searches through the current buffer for a pattern. It
prompts for a search string, then lists all matching lines in the grep
buffer. The grep buffer then appears in the current window.
By default, this-buffer-grep interprets the search string as a
regular expression. Press Ctrl-t at the search string prompt to toggle
regular expression mode. You can also type Ctrl-w or Ctrl-c to toggle
word-mode or case-folding searches, respectively.
In grep mode, alphabetic keys run special grep commands. See the
description of the grep-mode command for details. Typing H or "?"
in grep mode gives help on grep subcommands.
A bit in the search-in-region variable makes grepping a single
buffer restrict itself to a highlighted region. By default, Epsilon
searches the entire buffer.
