Searching ... say what?

I have 'Searching' in big white letters at the bottom of my screen (where it says you're hungry, DTrap etc.. I pressed the wrong buttons somehow on the keyboard.

Dunno how I did it, don't know how to get rid of it. It's not really an issue but how can I rid myself of this?

Cheers

[edit] - it seemed to go by itself - but... I'm still curious.

[edit2] - worked it now, move along move along

Hit 'S' (that's shift-s) to toggle search mode on and off. All it does, I think, is make you move twice as slowly so you're more likely to notice secret doors, traps, etc. It turns itself off when you get disturbed (e.g. by seeing a monster).

Yeah, I worked it out, but that's useful anyway, thanks

Incidentally: do people actually use search mode? In the rare cases in which I am stuck in a room and I have to search a whole section of walls, I normally use move-s-move-s and don't bother with it.

Not in vanilla. In NPP, kill x monster quests, sometimes.

Yeah I'm playing vanilla, clearly didn't realise it existed and have no plans to use it any time soon.

Don't think I've ever used it in Vanilla. Usually you can spot the points where secret doors would be and just tunnel into the square instead.

I use it relatively frequently prior to finding detect doors/stairs, especially when I'm early on a level and run into a situation where I have no doors and no obvious places to look (like getting dropped into a room with no exit).
