|Edit the contents of a directory. ||Ctrl-X D|
The command dired (for directory edit) allows you to conveniently
peruse the contents of a directory, examining the contents of files
and, if you wish, selecting some for deletion, copying, or moving.
The command prompts for the name of a directory or a file pattern. By
default, it uses the current directory. It then displays a buffer in
the current window, with contents similar to what the operating system
command "dir" would display. Each line of the dired buffer contains
the name of a file and information about it.
In dired mode, alphabetic keys run special dired commands. See the
description of the dired-mode command for details. Typing H or "?"
in dired mode gives help on dired subcommands.
