If called from Lisp, enable View mode | if ARG is omitted or nil. | | When View mode is enabled, commands that do not change the buffer | contents are available as usual. Kill commands insert text in | kill buffers but do not delete. Most other commands beep and | tell the user that the buffer is read-only. | | | | The following additional commands are provided. Most commands | take prefix arguments. Page commands default to "page size" | lines which is almost a whole window, or number of lines set by | z or w. | Half page commands default to and set "half page size" lines | which initially is half a window full. Search commands default | to a repeat count of one. | | H, h, ? This message. | Digits provide prefix arguments. | - negative prefix argument. | < move to the beginning of buffer. | > move to the end of buffer. | o scroll so that buffer end is at last line of window. | SPC scroll forward "page size" lines. | With prefix scroll forward prefix lines. | DEL scroll backward "page size" lines. | With prefix scroll backward prefix lines. | z like SPC but with prefix sets "page size" to prefix. | w like DEL but with prefix sets "page size" to prefix. | d scroll forward "half page size" lines. With prefix, sets | "half page size" to prefix lines and scrolls forward that much. | u scroll backward "half page size" lines. With prefix, sets | "half page size" to prefix lines and scrolls backward that much. | RET, LFD scroll forward one line. With prefix scroll forward prefix line(s). | y scroll backward one line. With prefix scroll backward prefix line(s). | F revert-buffer if necessary and scroll forward. | Use this to view a changing file. | = prints the current line number. | % goes prefix argument (default 100) percent into buffer. | g goes to line given by prefix argument (default first line). | . set the mark. | x exchanges point and mark. | @ return to mark and pops mark ring. | Mark ring is pushed at start of every successful search and when | jump to line occurs. The mark is set on jump to buffer start or end. | m save current position in character register. | ' go to position saved in character register. | s do forward incremental search. | r do reverse incremental search. | / searches forward for regular expression, starting after current page. | ! and @ have a special meaning at the beginning of the regexp. | ! means search for a line with no match for regexp. @ means start | search at beginning (end for backward search) of buffer. | \ searches backward for regular expression, starting before current page. | n searches forward for last regular expression. | p searches backward for last regular expression. | q quit View mode, restoring this window and buffer to previous state. | q is the normal way to leave view mode. | e exit View mode but stay in current buffer. Use this if you started | viewing a buffer (file) and find out you want to edit it. | This command restores the previous read-only status of the buffer. | E exit View mode, and make the current buffer editable | even if it was not editable before entry to View mode. | Q quit View mode, restoring all windows to previous state. | c quit View mode and maybe switch buffers, but don't kill this buffer. | C quit View mode, kill current buffer and go back to other buffer. | | The effect of c, q and C depends on how view-mode was entered. If it was | entered by view-file, view-file-other-window, view-file-other-frame, or | M-x dired-view-file (M-x view-file, M-x view-file-other-window, | M-x view-file-other-frame, or the Dired mode v command), | then q will try to kill the current buffer. | If view-mode was entered from another buffer, by C-c v, | M-x view-buffer-other-window, M-x view-buffer-other frame, M-x view-file, | M-x view-file-other-window, or M-x view-file-other-frame, | then c, q and C will return to that buffer. | | Entry to view-mode runs the normal hook `view-mode-hook'. | | [back] `---- -- cheers, Thorsten
