I have checked separately so that later if we wish to have separate commands to search above or below separately it would be useful.

Sorry for not following up with the coding standards.
I have updated my version of code and have attached the patch file.

Interesting feature.  Thanks for the patch.  I don't have time to
look at this in detail for some weeks, but after a quick look: why
separately look for matches before and after the cursor position?
Why not run through the entire file from top to bottom?  That is:
from 'fileage' to 'filebot'.  Or do you wish to have the closer
matches to take precedence?

Some details: please use a blank line between functions, and give
each function an introductory comment.  Always use a space after
'if' and 'for' and comma.  And elide check_if_exceeds().
