 You mean, you cannot 'return' from a function without generating an error 
message? Elisp doesn't have a straight 'return' statement?

 Actually coming from the vim world, all these error messages are sort of 
strange. For a person used to just a beep, after some time, these messages can 
get into your head.

 There should be some option for advanced users to turn off -all- error 
messages; they do cause certain discomfort. But I guess, that is not trivially 
possible. I will just have to rewrite those functions without those error 
messages...  That will mean a lot of rewrite though....

 I noticed Emacs does not try to be Keyboard efficient. Pressing 2 <C-s> to get 
to the next match seems almost preposterous to me. (In vim it is just an 'n' - 
the difference is huge) Yeah, but I guess it all depends on your view point...

 Currently I am trying to implement incremental search into Viper search... As 
I said earlier, 2 <C-s> are too much for me..

 Could somebody give me a -SIMPLE- incremental search code. The one with 
package is too complex for me - I am just a 12 day old toddler.

 And I am repeating one of my previous requests here..

 Can I map <C-d> to generate a <C-c>. It is not about -define-key-... I need to 
map keys one step below that... When I press <C-d> I want the upper layers 
(mainly the elisp modules) to think that I have pressed <C-c>. Otherwise I will 
have to go around and remap the <C-c> in -every- module...

 Thanks for all the help...
