14.9.4 Immediate File Operations in Dired
-----------------------------------------

Some file operations in Dired take place immediately when they are
requested.

`C'
     Copies the file described on the current line.  You must supply a
     file name to copy to, using the minibuffer.

`f'
     Visits the file described on the current line.  It is just like
     typing `C-x C-f' and supplying that file name.  If the file on
     this line is a subdirectory, `f' actually causes Dired to be
     invoked on that subdirectory.  Note: Visiting.

`o'
     Like `f', but uses another window to display the file's buffer.
     The Dired buffer remains visible in the first window.  This is
     like using `C-x 4 C-f' to visit the file.  Note: Windows.

`R'
     Renames the file described on the current line.  You must supply a
     file name to rename to, using the minibuffer.

`v'
     Views the file described on this line using `M-x view-file'.
     Viewing a file is like visiting it, but is slanted toward moving
     around in the file conveniently and does not allow changing the
     file.  Note: View File.  Viewing a file that is a
     directory runs Dired on that directory.
