Windows 10, Emacs 25.1, Dired
If I want to copy to parent's directory name to kill-ring I go to folder name and press
OK. It's work.
But I wan't to move cursor and get parent's directory name.
I try by command
digit-argument w but I get the next result:
As you can see Emacs copy to kill-ring files name and dirs names. But it not copy the parent's directory name.
wdoes? Can you get what you want by defining and using a keyboard macro? If so, then a recipe that details defining the macro you use would make clear just what action you want to perform. To me it's not clear yet.
