There are many ways, here is one: You pick an existing dired
command that supposedly has to do similar operations as the one you
want to write. Look at its source ("C-h M-f" works most of the time).
Try to understand how the existing function works and extract the
functions and variables you will need in your own code. Look at the
docstrings to make sure they really do what you believe.
