1. How do I see only those lines that contain a particular string?
A. Type 'X all' then 'F all 'search-string'. Also, command ?Del all x? can be used to delete all the un-displayed lines.

2. Now I want to see only those lines that contain a particular value in the display I get after doing an 'X all, F all'.
A. Type ' F new_value all nx'. 'nx' will restrict the search only to the displayed lines.

3. How do I go to a particular line numbers?
A. Use 'L search-string' command. This is the Label command.

4. I want to find for a search-string that is Not prefix/suffix of another word. I want to find for an instance of a search-string that is whole word by itself. How can I do this?
A. Use keyword 'word' at the end of find command. E.g., 'f job word' will find for the whole word 'job'.

5. How do I specify the direction of search i.e., how do I search for a string in backward / forward direction (w.r.t. your current cursor position)?
A.
Direction Keyword Example
Backward PREV F 'job' PREV finds for string 'job' in backward direction
Forward No need to mention any keyword. It's default direction.
F 'job' finds for string 'job' in forward direction.
From the beginning of the file: F 'job' FIRST finds the first instance of sting 'job' in the file.
Count of all instances in file ALL F 'job' FIRST finds the first instance of sting 'job' in the file and gives total-no-of-instances of sting 'job' in the file.

6. How do I search for a value say '0980312' stored in comp-3 format?
A. Type F X'0980312'.

7. How do I do case sensitive search find for a given search-string?
A. Just, enclose the search-string within quotes and have a letter C in front of the string itself. For e.g., F C'FindMe' will find all FindMe strings only if the case matches.

8. How do I find for any non-blank characters?
A. Use picture string '^'. E.g., "F P'^' 36" will find the next non-blank characters in column 36.

9. How do I find for any numeric character?

A. Use picture string '#'. E.g., 1. "F p'#'" finds the next numeric character and "F 'PAGE ##' will find the next instance of the string 'page followed by a blank followed by 2 numeric characters'.

10. How do I find for any non-numeric character?
A. Use picture string '-'.

11. How do I find for any alphabetic character?
A. Use picture string '@'.

12. How do I find for any uppercase alphabetic character?
A. Use picture string '>'.

13. How do I find for any lowercase alphabetic character?

A. Use picture string '<'.

14. How do I find for any non-display character?
A. Use picture string '.' E.g., "f p'.'" finds the next instance of non-display character.

You left out the MODEL primary command.

MODEL is a group of source statements and optional notes that provide
sample data for creating and editing dialogs.

Actually, it is the LOCATE command.

Also, see ONLY primary command.
HIDE will hide the excluded lines. RESET will UNHIDE but it will also undo your x all;f all.

FIND LAST followed by repeated F5s will do finds starting at the bottom.
