;;; Commentary:

;; This code provides functions to list and edit the values of all global
;; option variables known to loaded Emacs Lisp code.  There are two entry
;; points, `list-options' and `edit' options'.  The latter enters a major
;; mode specifically for editing option values.  Do `M-x describe-mode' in
;; that context for more details.

;;; Code:

;;;###autoload
(defun list-options ()
  "Display a list of Emacs user options, with values and documentation."
  (interactive)
  (save-excursion
    (set-buffer (get-buffer-create "*List Options*"))

  (with-output-to-temp-buffer "*List Options*"
    (let (vars)
      (mapatoms (function (lambda (sym)

Major mode for editing Emacs user option settings.
Special commands are:
\\[Edit-options-set] -- set variable point points at.  New value read using minibuffer.
\\[Edit-options-toggle] -- toggle variable, t -> nil, nil -> t.
\\[Edit-options-t] -- set variable to t.
\\[Edit-options-nil] -- set variable to nil.
Changed values made by these commands take effect immediately.

Each variable description is a paragraph.
For convenience, the characters \\[backward-paragraph] and \\[forward-paragraph] move back and forward by paragraphs."

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
