Edit directory mode (Edir)
Next: Html mode
Up: Using mode
Previous: Shell mode
This mode helps you to navigate through directories and to do
some operations on files (i.e. load, copy, change mode,
compress etc). The Edir() Smac function which is
bound to Ctrl-x d, prompts a dialog box and waits
for a target directory. A text window is then opened which
contains the result of a ls -alg. In this window, the
Edir commands will act on the file or the directory
indicated by the cursor (the cursor only need to be on the
line of the file or directory chosen).
If you hit the '?' key, the list of the available
commands is viewed in the message box.
- ? shows this list.
- f lists the contents of a directory or edits a
file in the current window.
- n opens a new window and lists the contents of
a directory or edits a file.
- < lists the contents of the parent
directory in the current window.
- > lists the contents of the parent directory
in another window.
- q quits the current Edir window.
- r rereads the current directory.
- s issues a shell command.
- C copies the pointed file.
- G changes the group of the pointed directory or
- H creates a hard link to a target directory or file.
- M changes the mode of the pointed directory or file.
- P prints the pointed file.
- R renames the pointed directory or file.
- S creates a symbolic link to a target directory or
- Z compresses or uncompresses the pointed file.
- = calls a diff command.
