Hi YAMAGUCHI-san and all,

Thank you for your reply and I'm really glad to get it from you.

I agree your suggestion that it's better to create the independent minor mode
for this switching directory facility.

And I've created the first version. The attached image shows how to work
`switch-dir-select-mode' function. I with you would like new interface.

The usage is as follows, please try to use it and comment if any.
Your reply encourage me to my happy hacking :-)

* Usage *
0. Edit the line 72-77 in switch-dir.el.
1. Move the switch-dir.el to your load-path.
2. $ echo -e "(require 'switch-dir)\n(switch-dir-mode t)" >> $HOME/.emacs
3. M-x switch-dir-select after emacs invoked.

;;; Commentary:

;; Provides a local minor mode (toggled by M-x switch-dir-mode) to change
;; a directory from directory list.
;; You could make the directory list for using varialbe `switch-dir-alist'
;; to show and select these easily and interactively.
;; This was impremented to satisfy a request for GNU GLOBAL to change
;; a directory under which the tag file(GTAGS) is located.

;; `switch-dir-mode' is implemented as a minor mode so that it can work with any
;; other major modes. `switch-dir-select-mode' is implemented as a major mode.
;; Please copy this file into emacs lisp library directory or place it in
;; a directory (for example "~/switch-dir.el") and write $HOME/.emacs like this.
;;      (setq load-path (cons "~/switch-dir.el" load-path))
;; If you hope to use `switch-dir-mode' with GNU GLOBAL `gtags-mode', please add
;; `gtags-mode-hook' to your $HOME/.emacs like below.
;;      (setq gtags-mode-hook '(lambda () (switch-dir-mode t)))
;; Happy Hacking!
