| ============================
| Dired
| -----
| `gnus-dired-minor-mode' provided some useful functions for dired
| buffers.  It is enabled with
|      (add-hook 'dired-mode-hook 'turn-on-gnus-dired-mode)
| `C-c C-m C-a'
|      Send dired's marked files as an attachment (`gnus-dired-attach').
|      You will be prompted for a message buffer.
| `C-c C-m C-l'
|      Visit a file according to the appropriate mailcap entry
|      (`gnus-dired-find-file-mailcap').  With prefix, open file in a new
|      buffer.
| `C-c C-m C-p'
|      Print file according to the mailcap entry (`gnus-dired-print').  If
|      there is no print command, print in a PostScript image.

This feature is new in the 5.10 series of Gnus, so you probably need
to upgrade your Gnus (5.10.6 is the latest stable release).

Bye, Reiner.
