3.27.2 Searching for Articles

Search through all subsequent (raw) articles for a regexp (gnus-summary-search-article-forward).
Search through all previous (raw) articles for a regexp (gnus-summary-search-article-backward).
Repeat the previous search forwards (gnus-summary-repeat-search-article-forward).
Repeat the previous search backwards (gnus-summary-repeat-search-article-backward).
This command will prompt you for a header, a regular expression to match on this field, and a command to be executed if the match is made (gnus-summary-execute-command). If the header is an empty string, the match is done on the entire article. If given a prefix, search backward instead.

For instance, & <RET> some.*string <RET> # will put the process mark on all articles that have heads or bodies that match ‘some.*string’.

Perform any operation on all articles that have been marked with the process mark (gnus-summary-universal-argument).
