U.7 Hideshow minor mode

Hideshow minor mode provides selective display of portions of a program, known as blocks. You can use M-x hs-minor-mode to enable or disable this mode, or add hs-minor-mode to the mode hook for certain major modes in order to enable it automatically for those modes.

Just what constitutes a block depends on the major mode. In C mode or C++ mode, they are delimited by braces, while in Lisp mode and similar modes they are delimited by parentheses. Multi-line comments also count as blocks.

C-c @ C-h
Hide the current block (hs-hide-block).
C-c @ C-s
Show the current block (hs-show-block).
C-c @ C-c
Either hide or show the current block (hs-toggle-hiding)
Either hide or show the block you click on (hs-mouse-toggle-hiding)
C-c @ C-M-h
Hide all top-level blocks (hs-hide-all).
C-c @ C-M-s
Show everything in the buffer (hs-show-all).
C-c @ C-l
Hide all blocks n levels below this block (hs-hide-level).

These user options exist for customizing Hideshow mode.

Non-nil says that hs-hide-all should hide comments too.

Specifies what kind of hidden blocks to open in Isearch mode. The value should be one of these four symbols.

Open only code blocks.
Open only comments.
Open both code blocks and comments.
Open neither code blocks nor comments.

A list of elements, each specifying how to initialize Hideshow variables for one major mode. See the variable's documentation string for more information.
