Basics of the powerful Emacs file manager

Dired is simply superb

In this screen cast I offer an overview of the basic file management operations we can perform inside of GNU Emacs. The program that helps us in this task is called “dired”, which stands for “directory editor”.

This demo covers the basics as well as some more advanced use cases, based on what I have learned thus far (recall that I am new to Emacs).
