Hey, don't be childish... :-)

I am not speaking of hacking up any macros.

I was speaking of using standard features.

I assume that any reasonable programming editor has folding by
syntax built in or as a standard extension. I use vim foldings
all the time, so that I only need to look at the code that I am
currently interested in. The other functions and comments can
be folded away. (And I can't imagine that emacs does not support

I find this convenient to concentrate the view on the essential
parts while coding, but I am also not disturbed by looking at
the boilerplate comment in a code file, not evenw when the header
is larger than the actual code.
