@chapter Introduction
This documents the @emph{extra} features for Dired Mode for GNU Emacs 19. It
is derived from version 1.191 of Sebastian Kremer's @file{dired-x.el} and is

This documents the @emph{extra} features for Dired Mode for GNU Emacs. It
is derived from version 1.191 of Sebastian Kremer's @file{dired-x.el}.
In adopting this @file{dired-x.el} to GNU Emacs v19 some material that has
been incorporated into @file{dired.el} and @file{dired-aux.el} of the GNU Emacs
19 distribution has been removed and some material was modified for agreement
with the functions in @file{dired.el} and @file{dired-aux.el}. For example,
the code using @code{gmhist} history functions was replaced with code using
the mini-buffer history now built into GNU Emacs 19. Finally, a few other
the mini-buffer history now built into GNU Emacs. Finally, a few other
features have been added and a few more functions have been bound to keys.
Please note that @file{dired-x.el} and this texinfo file @file{dired-x.texi}
are bundled with GNU Emacs versions 19.23 and later.

One drawback is that @file{dired-x.el} will load @file{dired-aux.el} as soon
as dired is loaded. Thus, the advantage of separating out non-essential dired
stuff into @file{dired-aux.el} and only loading when necessary will be lost
when @file{dired-x.el} is used.

@section Special Notes
If @file{dired-x.el} was @emph{not} bundled with the version of GNU Emacs
installed at your site (i.e., not in the default @file{../lisp} directory)
then you must put the file @file{dired-x.el} in a directory known to GNU
Emacs. Examine the variable @code{load-path} for a list of these directories.
If you wish to add a new directory on this list of directories use something
like this in your @file{.emacs} file
@example
;;; LOAD PATH
(setq load-path (append
load-path ; default at top
(list
"/the/directory/where/you/put/dired-x")))
@end example
@noindent If you wish to put the new directory at the head of the list (where
it will be found first) then you should use instead
@example
;;; LOAD PATH
(setq load-path (append
(list
"/the/directory/where/you/put/dired-x")
load-path)) ; default at bottom
@end example
You must also byte compile the file (for example, hitting @kbd{B} in
@code{dired-mode}). When byte-compiling @file{dired-x.el} you may get
messages about functions @code{vm-visit-folder}, @code{Man-notify-when-ready},
and @code{reporter-submit-bug-report} not being defined. These are warnings
and should be ignored.
@noindent CAUTION: If you are using a version of GNU Emacs earlier than 19.20
than you may have to edit @file{dired.el}. The copy of @file{dired.el} in GNU
Emacs versions earlier than 19.20 incorrectly had the call to @code{run-hooks}
@emph{before} the call to @code{provide}. In such a case, it is possible that
byte-compiling and/or loading dired can cause an infinite loop. To prevent
this, make sure the line of code
@example
(run-hooks 'dired-load-hook)
@end example
@noindent is the @emph{last} executable line in the file @file{dired.el}.
That is, make sure it comes @emph{after} the line
@example
(provide 'dired)
