Yes, read the help sections on regular _expression_ search and replace. You can "capture" the text between the {}'s and keep it without losing it (read up on submatches).

Hi!

I'm using emacs to write LaTeX code, which means I have a lot of stuff
that looks like this:

\section{Headline}

Blah blah yada yada \textit{italic yada} and the yada yada \textbf
{bold yada} and then \myspecial{yada}.

You get the picture. I wanna search and delete the enclosing thingy,
like so:

\myspecial{yada} -----> yada

Is there a way to do this in emacs?

Please help!
