Emacs Tip #16: check-parens

Ever had trouble finding a mismatched parentheses in a file? Of course not, you don't make mistakes.

But, if you do, you can use the built in functionality of M-x check-parens

The documentation is here Parentheses - GNU Emacs Manual

It doesn't pinpoint the problem as closely as I would have hoped in some modes, but it's better than nothing.
