The following symbols are used as the names for various keymaps.
Some of these exist when Emacs is first started, others are
loaded only when their respective mode is used. This is not
an exhaustive list.
In this section we list some of the more general keymaps. Many of
these exist when Emacs is first started, but some are loaded only when
the respective feature is accessed.
Several keymaps are used in the minibuffer. @xref{Completion Commands}.
Almost all of these maps are used as local maps. Indeed, of the modes
that presently exist, only Vip mode and Terminal mode ever change the
global keymap.
There are many other, more specialized, maps than these; in particular
those associated with major and minor modes. The minibuffer uses
several keymaps (@pxref{Completion Commands}). For more details on
keymaps, @pxref{Keymaps}.
@c Don't list individual major mode keymaps here, only more general things.
@c Only add vindex for things not covered elsewhere in this manual.
@c Don't add xrefs to things covered in {Keymaps}.
