4 Local Variables for Dired Directories
When Dired visits a directory, it looks for a file whose name is the
value of variable `dired-local-variables-file' (default: `.dired'). If
such a file is found, Dired will temporarily insert it into the Dired
buffer and run `hack-local-variables'.
For example, if the user puts
into a file called `.dired' in a directory then when that directory is
viewed it will be
1. sorted by date
2. omitted automatically
You can set `dired-local-variables-file' to `nil' to suppress this.
The value of `dired-enable-local-variables' controls if and how these
local variables are read. This variable exists so that if may override
the default value of `enable-local-variables'.
Please see the GNU Emacs Manual to learn more about local variables.
Note: Local Variables in Files.
The following variables affect Dired Local Variables
If non-`nil', file name for local variables for Dired. If Dired
finds a file with that name in the current directory, it will
temporarily insert it into the Dired buffer and run
Controls the use of local-variables lists in Dired. The value can
be `t', `nil', or something else. A value of `t' means
local-variables lists are obeyed in the
`dired-local-variables-file'; `nil' means they are ignored;
anything else means query. This variable temporarily overrides
the value of `enable-local-variables' when the Dired Local
Variables are hacked.
