......@@ -81,6 +81,13 @@ specified, the @code{ls} switches can include short options (that is,
single characters) requiring no arguments, and long options (starting
with @samp{--}) whose arguments are specified with @samp{=}.
@vindex dired-use-ls-dired
Note that Dired automatically adds the option @samp{--dired}, if
your @code{ls} program supports it, unless you explicitly set
the variable @code{dired-use-ls-dired} to @code{nil}. Without this
option, Dired will have trouble parsing some @samp{unusual} file-names.
See the documentation of @code{dired-use-ls-dired} for more details.
On MS-Windows and MS-DOS systems, Emacs @emph{emulates} @code{ls};
see @ref{ls in Lisp}, for options and peculiarities of that emulation.
