  "Edit multi-line C comments.
This command allows the easy editing of a multi-line C comment like this:
   /*
    * ...
    * ...
    */
The comment may be indented or flush with the left margin.

If point is within a comment, that comment is used.  Otherwise the
comment to be edited is found by searching forward from point.

With one \\[universal-argument] searching starts after moving back one
  paragraph.
With two \\[universal-argument]'s searching starts at the beginning of the
  current or proceeding C function.
With three \\[universal-argument]'s searching starts at the beginning of the
  current page.
With four \\[universal-argument]'s searching starts at the beginning of the
  current buffer (clipping restrictions apply).

Once located, the comment is copied into a temporary buffer, the comment
leaders and delimiters are stripped away and the resulting buffer is
selected for editing.  The major mode of this buffer is controlled by
the variable `c-comment-edit-mode'.\\<c-comment-edit-map>

Use \\[c-comment-edit-end] when you have finished editing the comment.  The
comment will be inserted into the original buffer with the appropriate
delimiters and indention, replacing the old version of the comment.  If
you don't want your edited version of the comment to replace the
original, use \\[c-comment-edit-abort]."

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.
