I use this in dired (typing '0 w' with point on a file/dir):

,-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| w runs the command dired-copy-filename-as-kill, which is an
| interactive compiled Lisp function in `dired.el'.
| 
| It is bound to w, <menu-bar> <operate> <kill-ring>.
| 
| (dired-copy-filename-as-kill &optional ARG)
| 
| Copy names of marked (or next ARG) files into the kill ring.
| The names are separated by a space.
| With a zero prefix arg, use the absolute file name of each marked file.
| With C-u, use the file name relative to the dired buffer's
| `default-directory'.  (This still may contain slashes if in a subdirectory.)
