Re: Norton Commander?

it is also the same case with me. i used norton commander quite a lot in dos
age and early stage of win95. but now nc can't be used under NT4.0 and Win98
and Unix and Linux. so for NT4.0 & Win98, i turn to volkov commander, for Unix & Linux, i turn to MC. all are clones of nc.

I've been using this interface since, what was it?, 1982, that's twenty years, it's coming out in my blood samples now. :^)

Started with Norton, went to Volkov, when I needed long file names switched to Windows Commander, that is not free but shareware, but nonetheless a great program, and the best I've seen on any Windows until now. Christian Ghisler still has a 16-bit version for Win3.1!

I'm not current on the MC port to Windows, or whether it can run under Cygwin, but it sure would be nice.

dirty, you suddenly visualize that I am looking over your shoulders
and say to yourself, "Dijkstra would not have liked this", well that
would be enough immortality for me."  E. J. Dijkstra, August 1995
