15 Searching and Replacement

Like other editors, Emacs has commands to search for occurrences of a string. Emacs also has commands to replace occurrences of a string with a different string. There are also commands that do the same thing, but search for patterns instead of fixed strings.

You can also search multiple files under the control of a tags table (see Tags Search) or through the Dired A command (see Operating on Files), or ask the grep program to do it (see Grep Searching).
