      I often use `dired-mode' inside an Emacs session to move around,
      copy, re-organize, rename or delete files.  Any file manager that
      can display several character sets at once will do fine :)
Hey there Giorgos,

I'd love to use emacs but I go into 'dired-mode' and I try to rename the
^M' directory and receive an error from emacs.  The error claims
"file-error Renaming no such file or directory /mnt/mybook-music/^M

What do I do?

If you have customized `dired-listing-switches' try reverting it to a
simpler set of options, like:

    (setq-default dired-listing-switches "-lFa")

The -b and -B options tend to confuse dired about what the *real*
filename is, and may trigger this sort of error.

thanks I placed that setq option in my .emacs and that works for renaming files and directories containing control character. I am unable to rename a directory that has nine '?'.

What setq modification will allow emacs to change those type filenames?
