1. How do I see only those lines that contain a particular string?
A. Type ‘X all’ then ‘F all ‘search-string’. Also, command ?Del all x? can be used to delete all the un-displayed lines.

2. Now I want to see only those lines that contain a particular value in the display I get after doing an ‘X all, F all’.
A. Type ‘ F new_value all nx’. ‘nx’ will restrict the search only to the displayed lines.

3. How do I go to a particular line numbers?
A. Use ‘L search-string’ command. This is the Label command.

4. I want to find for a search-string that is Not prefix/suffix of another word. I want to find for an instance of a search-string that is whole word by itself. How can I do this?
A. Use keyword ‘word’ at the end of find command. E.g., ‘f job word’ will find for the whole word ‘job’.

5. How do I specify the direction of search i.e., how do I search for a string in backward / forward direction (w.r.t. your current cursor position)?
A.
Direction Keyword Example
Backward PREV F ‘job’ PREV finds for string ‘job’ in backward direction
Forward No need to mention any keyword. It’s default direction.
F ‘job’ finds for string ‘job’ in forward direction.
From the beginning of the file: F ‘job’ FIRST finds the first instance of sting ‘job’ in the file.
Count of all instances in file ALL F ‘job’ FIRST finds the first instance of sting ‘job’ in the file and gives total-no-of-instances of sting ‘job’ in the file.

6. How do I search for a value say ‘0980312’ stored in comp-3 format?
A. Type F X’0980312′.

7. How do I do case sensitive search find for a given search-string?
A. Just, enclose the search-string within quotes and have a letter C in front of the string itself. For e.g., F C’FindMe’ will find all FindMe strings only if the case matches.

8. How do I find for any non-blank characters?
A. Use picture string ‘^’. E.g., “F P‘^’ 36″ will find the next non-blank characters in column 36.

9. How do I find for any numeric character?
A. Use picture string ‘#’. E.g., 1. “F p‘#'” finds the next numeric character and “F ‘PAGE ##’ will find the next instance of the string ‘page followed by a blank followed by 2 numeric characters’.

10. How do I find for any non-numeric character?
A. Use picture string ‘-‘.

11. How do I find for any alphabetic character?
A. Use picture string ‘@’.

12. How do I find for any uppercase alphabetic character?
A. Use picture string ‘>’.

13. How do I find for any lowercase alphabetic character?
A. Use picture string ‘<‘.

14. How do I find for any non-display character?
A. Use picture string ‘.’ E.g., “f p‘.'” finds the next instance of non-display character.
