This page is about library iedit.el.

You can obtain it here:

This package is an Emacs minor mode and allows you to edit one occurrence of some text in a buffer (possibly narrowed) or region, and simultaneously have other occurrences edited in the same way, with visual feedback as you type.

Normal scenario of Iedit mode is like:

This package also provides rectangle support with visible rectangle highlighting, which is similar with cua mode rectangle support. But it’s lighter weight and uses Iedit mechanisms.

You can also use Iedit mode as a quick way to temporarily show only the buffer lines that match the current text being edited. This gives you the effect of a temporary ‘keep-lines’ or ‘occur’. To get this effect, hit C-’ when in Iedit mode - it toggles hiding non-matching lines.

Renaming refactoring is convenient in Iedit mode

There are also some other facilities you may never think about. Refer to the document of function ‘iedit-mode’ (C-h f iedit-mode RET) for more details.

I hope this package could be extend to support html paired tag real-time rename. — It is already supported in the lastest version.
