;;; Commentary:
;; This is Sebastian Kremer's excellent dired-x.el (Dired Extra), version
;; 1.191, hacked up for GNU Emacs. Redundant or conflicting material has
;; been removed or renamed in order to work properly with dired of GNU
;; Emacs. All suggestions or comments are most welcomed.
;; Please, PLEASE, *PLEASE* see the info pages.
;; BUGS: Type M-x dired-x-submit-report and a report will be generated.
;; INSTALLATION: In your ~/.emacs,

;; (add-hook 'dired-mode-hook
;; (function (lambda ()
;; ;; Set buffer-local variables here. For example:
;; ;; (dired-omit-mode 1)

PREDICATE is a lisp expression that can refer to the following symbols:
inode [integer] the inode of the file (only for ls -i output)
s [integer] the size of the file for ls -s output
(usually in blocks or, with -k, in KByte)
mode [string] file permission bits, e.g. \"-rw-r--r--\"
nlink [integer] number of links to file
uid [string] owner
gid [string] group (If the gid is not displayed by ls,
this will still be set (to the same as uid))
size [integer] file size in bytes
time [string] the time that ls displays, e.g. \"Feb 12 14:17\"
name [string] the name of the file
sym [string] if file is a symbolic link, the linked-to name, else \"\"
For example, use
(equal 0 size)
to mark all zero length files."
