First, Peter thank you for taking time to respond.

But Peter, that is what my questions are about... how to accomplish
sequential numbering.  So what is there at your citation that informs
me about that?

Although you have gone to some trouble to respond, I guess I'm having
a lot of trouble understanding your meaning in these posts...

My input in this thread started with a question directed at Eli about
the use of % R (from dired of course)

My questions are about dired mode.  Eli's input indicated one could do
something with % R from dired.  

What you've shown, at least in part does not apply to dired mode does
it?  At least some of the operators you keep referring to are not
available in dired, or so it appears at this end.

Since I've gotten pretty confused reading your replies maybe its time
to wait for Eli if he is of a mind to respond, or mabye you can tell
me how to do sequential numbering specifically from dired with a small
example.
