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.
