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 xref (see Identifier Search) or through the Dired A command (see Operating on Files), or ask the grep program to do it (see Grep Searching).
