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)
S-Mouse-2
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.

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

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

code
Open only code blocks.
comment
Open only comments.
t
Open both code blocks and comments.
nil
Open neither code blocks nor comments.

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