When , in dired mode, I enter (by press RET) to directory the dired create many buffers. Something like this:


As you can see was crated 4 buffers: Temp, test, test2, test3

But I need the next:

  1. Input in directory by press key RET
  2. Create always only one buffer when I input in directory and exist/up from directory (by ^)

Use Dired+, and put this in your init file:

(diredp-toggle-find-file-reuse-dir 1)

That makes Dired kill the current Dired buffer when you visit another directory in Dired.
