script type
SearchFold is a good script to have around. You give it a search string to find and folds everything except for the lines where the string matches. By default is keeps some non-matching lines around so you can get an idea of where you are in the file and gives you the ability to expand “the view” for a particular match to get more context. After you are done looking around you can “quit” the script and keep the fold or go back to the file as it was (restoring any previous folds).
