excel autofilter type functionality?

it it possible to replicate an excel autofilter type functionality, where, say, I only want to see the lines in a document that contain the string "@TODO"?

thanks!

Not really... the closest thing is to select all the lines (find all, followed by ctrl+l), copy them, and paste them into a new file

Maybe you can use:

The command would be: %V/@TODO/

If you want to re-use commands easily, you can use this together with UberSelection:

http://bitbucket.org/guillermooo/textbutcher/src

However, you would still need to copy and paste into a new buffer to exclude all other lines.
