;;; Commentary:

;; This is a light variant of `find-dired' for those who run Emacs on
;; w32.

;; Instead of using find, cmd.exe's `dir' command is used. The output
;; is then transformed to something dired can use, using
;; `insert-directory' from ls-lisp.el.

;; It does not support all things that `find-dired' can do, mostly
;; because the dir-command command used is not as powerful. It is also
;; "hard coded" into doing recursive directory listing.

;; Most of the code is ripped from find-dired.el

;;; Code:

(require 'dired)

(defvar w32-find-dired-pattern nil
  "Last arguments given to `for' by \\[w32-find-dired].")

;; History of w32-find-dired-pattern values entered in the minibuffer.
