"C-u F":
| F runs the command dired-do-find-marked-files, which is an interactive
| compiled Lisp function in `dired-x.el'.
| It is bound to F, <menu-bar> <operate> <find-files>.
| (dired-do-find-marked-files &optional NOSELECT)
| Find all marked files displaying all of them simultaneously.
| With optional NOSELECT just find files but do not select them.
| The current window is split across all files marked, as evenly as possible.
| Remaining lines go to bottom-most window.  The number of files that can be
| displayed this way is restricted by the height of the current window and
| `window-min-height'.
| To keep dired buffer displayed, type C-x 2 first.
| To display just marked files, type C-x 1 first.
