1.2 Technical Details

When dired-x.el is loaded, some standard Dired functions from dired.el and dired-aux.el offer additional features. dired-add-entry obeys Dired Omit mode (see Omitting Files in Dired), if it is active. dired-find-buffer-nocreate and dired-initial-position respect the value of dired-find-subdir (see Miscellaneous Commands). dired-clean-up-after-deletion respects the value of dired-clean-up-buffers-too. dired-read-shell-command uses dired-guess-shell-command (see Shell Command Guessing) to offer a smarter default command.
