Re: Create shell from ido

That doesn't work, unfortunately - I tried it., as well as emulating the other dired stuff.  I'm not sure why that doesn't work, but I managed to write a function that does:

(defun ido-shell ()
  (let ((dirname (expand-file-name (ido-read-directory-name "Shell in directory: "))))
    (shell dirname)
    (comint-send-string (current-buffer) (concat "cd " dirname "\n"))))

I have ido activated.  If I do C-x C-f and navigate to a directory, C-d will open a dired buffer in that directory.  Is there a way to open a shell buffer instead?

I don't use ido, so I don't even know how to test this.  But here's what I came
up with from looking at ido.el.  I didn't understand how to properly implement
ido-magic-control-s, so you have to type `C-x C-f C-x C-s' (by analogy with
`C-x C-f C-x C-d', which runs ido-enter-dired):

(defun ido-enter-shell ()
 "Drop into `shell' from file switching."
 (setq ido-exit 'shell)

(define-key ido-file-dir-completion-map "\C-x\C-s" 'ido-enter-shell)
