Hiding Directories in Dired
"Hiding" a subdirectory means to make it invisible, except for its
headerline. Files inside a hidden subdirectory are never considered by
Dired. For example, mark-using commands will not "see" files in a
hidden directory. Thus you can use hiding to temporarily exclude
subdirectories from operations without having to remove the markers.
The hiding commands toggle, that is they unhide what was hidden and
(`dired-hide-subdir') Hide or unhide the current subdirectory and
move to next directory. Optional prefix argument is a repeat
(`dired-hide-all') Hide all subdirectories, leaving only their
header lines. If there is already something hidden, make
everything visible again. Use this command to get an overview in
very deep directory trees or to move quickly to subdirs far away.
