Dear Emacs community,
Being in Dired mode I want to apply a shell command to a file
I'm using the extension dired-x.el, Emacs 21.2.1. When in
Dired mode I use dired-do-shell-command for launching xdvi on
a .dvi file. I want to use Emacs further while browsing the
xdvi window, but that is impossible since Emacs waits until
the xdvi process is terminated.
When I perform a shell command on files, etc. in emacs, I just put a &
after the command. This may be to simplistic, but it seems to work.
