C-c /
Without a prefix argument, this command toggles case-sensitive/case-insensitive search modes and plain vanilla/regular expression search. With the prefix argument 1, i.e., 1 C-c /, this toggles case-sensitivity; with the prefix argument 2, toggles plain vanilla search and search using regular expressions. See Viper Specials, for alternative ways to invoke this function.
%
Find the next bracket/parenthesis/brace and go to its match. By default, Viper ignores brackets/parentheses/braces that occur inside parentheses. You can change this by setting viper-parse-sexp-ignore-comments to nil in your Viper customization file. This option can also be toggled interactively if you quickly hit %%%.

This latter feature is implemented as a vi-style keyboard macro. If you don't want this macro, put

          (viper-set-parsing-style-toggling-macro 'undefine)

in your Viper customization file.
