I have some small questions about dired...
        I was looking for a way to adjust dired's coloring to the terminal
colors provided
        by '.dircolors'. I saw 'dircolors.el', but it does not seem to be
helpful for dired's mode!?

        How can I run a function on a the currently highlighted file, e.g.
I would like to tail a log file using "tail.el"?
        The 'tail-file' waits for a filename in the mini-buffer, but it
would be nice, if it takes the actual file in dired...

        I know, that I run special shell commands on the current file using
'!', it works pretty nice for different programs,
       but for a certain batch job I need to call:   'PROGRAM_NAME <

Maybe, some of you a an idea!? Would be great!
