Could you enlighten me what next/previous occurence has to do with
incremental search? :)
In any case, the urxvtperl manpage documents all the keys, including
Inputting characters appends them to the regex and continues incremental
search. "BackSpace" removes a character from the regex, "Up" and "Down"
search upwards/downwards in the scrollback buffer, "End" jumps to the
bottom. "Escape" leaves search mode and returns to the point where
search was started, while "Enter" or "Return" stay at the current
position and additionally stores the first match in the current line
into the primary selection.
(ah, I need to update it for the new behaviour).
