I'm switching over from Vim to Emacs and have one requirement that I haven't been able to find a solution for. In Vim I used Nerdtree to display a view of the file system in a different window to the left that was there all the time.
I know dired in Emacs offers all of these features (and probably more) but I'm not sure how to configure Emacs (I'm still new to it!) to always display the dired window on the left with one or more windows on the right for source code editing.
Can anyone offer any solutions to this particular problem please?
