urxvt-searchable-scrollback - Man Page

incremental scrollback search (enabled by default)

Description

Adds regex search functionality to the scrollback buffer, triggered by the searchable-scrollback:start action (bound to M-s by default). While in search mode, normal terminal input/output is suspended and a regex is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Inputting characters appends them to the regex and continues incremental search. In addition, the following bindings are recognized:

BackSpace

Remove a character from the regex.

Insert

Append the value of the PRIMARY selection to the regex.

Up

Search for a match upwards.

Down

Search for a match downwards.

Prior

Scroll up.

Next

Scroll down.

End

Scroll to the bottom.

Escape

Leave the mode and return to the point where search was started.

Enter or Return

Leave the mode maintaining the current position in the scrollback. Additionally, if the Shift modifier is active, store the first match in the current line into the primary selection.

The regex defaults to “(?i)”, resulting in a case-insensitive search. To get a case-sensitive search you can delete this prefix using BackSpace or simply use an uppercase character which removes the “(?i)” prefix.

See perlre for more info about perl regular expression syntax.
