Please, exactly what is that "!...4" key-sequence?

Get a Mac! Well, it could be intel based ...

The command I mentioned which works in dired-mode only is the exclamation mark: ! -- nothing more! When you type it while your cursor is on a file or on a directory a shell command can process it, the shell command is input in mini-buffer. This shell command's output lands in *Shell Command Output*. Although I remember that there is a way to create too an extra buffer with error messages -- I don't remember! (Probably too busy.)
