@cindex directories in buffer names
Emacs's standard method for making buffer names unique adds @samp{<2>},
@samp{<3>}, etc. to the end of (all but one of) the buffers. The
Uniquify package replaces that behavior, for buffers visiting files and
dired buffers. It implements a uniquification that adds parts of the
file name until the buffer names are unique. For instance, buffers
visiting @file{/u/mernst/tmp/Makefile} and
@file{/usr/projects/zaphod/Makefile} would be named @samp{tmp/Makefile}
and @samp{zaphod/Makefile}, respectively (instead of @samp{Makefile}
and @samp{Makefile<2>}). You can turn on this mode and select other
buffer name styles by customizing the user option
@code{uniquify-buffer-name-style}. The command @kbd{M-x
toggle-uniquify-buffer-names} can also be used to toggle the mode.
