Controlling the Display

   Since only part of a large buffer fits in the window, Emacs tries to
show the part that is likely to be interesting.  The display control
commands allow you to specify which part of the text you want to see.

     Clear screen and redisplay, scrolling the selected window to center
     point vertically within it (`recenter').

     Scroll forward (a windowful or a specified number of lines)

     Likewise, scroll forward.

     Scroll backward (`scroll-down').

     Likewise, scroll backward.

`ARG C-l'
     Scroll so point is on line ARG (`recenter').

`C-x <'
     Scroll text in current window to the left (`scroll-left').

`C-x >'
     Scroll to the right (`scroll-right').

`C-x $'
     Make deeply indented lines invisible (`set-selective-display').

   The names of all scroll commands are based on the direction that the
text moves in the window.  Thus, the command to scrolling forward is
called `scroll-up', since the text moves up.
