  "*Number of seconds idle time before auto-save.
Zero or nil means disable auto-saving due to idleness.

The actual amount of idle time between auto-saves is logarithmically related
to the size of the current buffer.  This variable is the number of seconds
after which an auto-save will happen when the current buffer is 50k or less;
the timeout will be 2 1/4 times this in a 200k buffer, 3 3/4 times this in a
1000k buffer, and 4 1/2 times this in a 2000k buffer.

See also the variable `auto-save-interval', which controls auto-saving based
on the number of characters typed.")

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.
