bug#11327: 24.1.50; doc of `dired-do-create-files' refers user to undocu


From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#11327: 24.1.50; doc of `dired-do-create-files' refers user to undocumented var/fn
Date: Tue, 24 Apr 2012 10:10:13 -0700

The doc string says:
 
... "The way the default for the target directory is computed depends on
the value of `dired-dwim-target-directory'."
 
There is no variable with that name.  And a function does not have a
"value".
 
Anyway, let's assume you mean the value returned by the function
`dired-dwim-target-directory'.  So we look that up, using `C-h f'.  What
do we see?  Nothing.  No doc string.
 
This kind of help is no help at all.  This is a no-no.  You cannot send
someone looking for help where there is no help to be found.
