For now, hotkeys are hardcoded, so you'll have to change the code. Is there an reasonable interest in configurable key bindings ?

Yes, very much so. Changing sort order and toggling of hidden files view would be very nice to have the possibility of configuring your own, or at least to have as shortcuts (in that case, preferably the ones Total Commander have chosen).

I'm currently thinking of some tiny generic library for this, which does like this:

a) commands have names (maybe even cmdline args ?)
b) hotkeys are mappings between keycodes and commands
c) menus/buttons map to command names
d) the mappings can be loaded from external files

But: using command names doesnt necessarily mean that every time strings have to be passed and parsed, instead an simple function could construct a direct pointer list where the caller works on.

I'd also like to see user-defined shortcut keys for mc please. So each user can tailor the shortcut keys for their own implementation of mc. Maybe mc could start with a set of default shorcuts that could then be customised?

Kind Regards,
