Help> w runs the command dired-copy-filename-as-kill
Help> Copy names of marked (or next ARG) files into the kill ring.
Help> With a zero prefix arg, use the complete pathname of each marked file.
Help> With C-u, use the relative pathname of each marked file.
But wait, isn't that the same as the default action?

And mainly, I like 0 w, and 1 w, but how to achieve both at the same
time?  Assume I have marked several files, but want to copy the full
path name of only the file I have the cursor on, to the kill ring.

At least document that case...

By the way, when one is in Emacs' Info [C-h i m e m a c s] it is
disturbing to have remember to climb up and out and back into
Dired-X's Info, or else one won't find commands one was looking
for... this whereas one already is used to Dired-X being part of emacs
after having autoloaded it for so many years, and regular dired having
been learned as being part of emacs and its manual back when reading
the paper manual 15 years ago... and feeling that Dired-X is just a
newer version of dired...

And dired-copy-filename-as-kill is not called
dired-x-copy-filename-as-kill ... and C-h i m emacs does have a dired
