- Make sure that buffers match the file contents. Useful for
catching up with changes made outside emacs (or by another emacs).
- Copy the files in a directory, copying only those that were not
- Try to fix up filename cases (when spoilt by case-insensitive OSes)
- Find the file whose name point is on, and other things like that.

For a given set of environment variable names, this puts

- Special handling of files in a directory named by the
COMMON. This is the directory

- Insert the name of the file in the other window, etc (often

- Find multiple files in one command.

- Intended for use with USB storage devices with WinEmacs, where

- Perform an operation on a file, killing the buffer afterwards
if it was not being visited before, and doing other similar
