Isearch powers in keyboard macros (Emacs)

Raw link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ad2grH_wFjk

In this video I demonstrate some of the powers of isearch through a keyboard macro. This explains why I still rely on this unassuming yet potent built-in tool while I also have a package declaration for swiper.

See my dotemacs for the documentation and package declarations I provide.

For the sake of completeness, Swiper is a search tool underpinned by the Ivy completion framework that I use: it fills a different niche than that of Isearch.
