Native GNU Midnight Commander for Win32 -------------------------------- Windows XP+/32 bit native port of GNU Midnight Commander, based on the current 4.8.x development stream. Version Latest Build 4.8.12 185 4.8.11 183 4.8.8 181 4.8.7 180 4.8.4 159 Midnight Commander (also known as mc) is a free cross-platform orthodox file manager and a clone of Norton Commander. Features include the ability work with common archive formats as if they were simply another directory, and to function as an FTP. Midnight Commander also includes an builtin editor called mcedit, features include syntax highlighting for many languages, macros, code snippets, simple integration with external tools, automatic indentation, mouse support, clipboard and the ability to work in both ASCII and hex modes. Midnight Commander can also rename groups of files, move files to a different directory at the same time as it renames them. It lets the user specify the original and resulting file names using wildcard characters. Midnight Commander is released under the GNU General Public License version 3 or any later version. A copy of the file is included with this distribution package. Install ------- Install simply though use of the windows installer package. Default directories are as follows, available using the '-F' command line option, the installation directory maybe be changed at your option: o XP Config directory: C:/Program Files/Midnight Commander/etc/ Data directory: C:/Program Files/Midnight Commander/share/ VFS plugins and scripts: extfs.d: C:/Program Files/Midnight Commander/plugin/extfs.d/ magic: C:/Program Files/Midnight Commander/etc//magic User data: C:/Documents and Settings/<user>/Application Data/Midnight Commander/ Once installed place the installation directory into your PATH. As an alternative keeping your PATH and dll's namespace clean, create a simple batch mc.bat which points to the true installation image. Getting Started -------------- There are a numerious resources detailing working with Midnight Commander, including: o Midnight Commander Draft Documentation https://www.midnight-commander.org/wiki/doc o FAQ see 'docs' within the installation directory. Source ------ Window native port for GNU Midnight Commander, the latest build can be found in the below link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mcwin32/ Specific information regarding the base Midnight Commander 4.8.x engine, can be found at the following http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnight_Commander www.midnight-commander.org Older information is available at www.gnu.org/software/mc Status ------ I would consider this port beta, as not all things may work as designed; yet as this package is in use day-to-day expect issues to be addressed quickly, plus the port is based on a prior port of 4.6.x which has been stable for years. Please feel free to raise tickets on SourceForge when issues are encountered. adamy 15/08/12 Other Resources --------------- There are a number of alternative, yet older, native builds available on the web. The two most referenced are: o www.siegward-jaekel.de/mc-gb.html o franco-bez.4lima.de Features and Limitations ------------------------ Internal editor is supported (including syntax highlighting). Internal viewer is supported (including hex editor). Note the underlying the view logic may invoke one or more system utilities which are not generally available on Windows systems. If upon viewing a file using <F3> and it fails, use <shift-F3> which shall use the internal viewer bypassing the file extension based logic. VFS (virtual file system) is enabled, yet not all of the modules have been enabled. Concurrent subshell is not supported. Use forward slashes where possible, as backslash support is not fully tested. A few items are unix specific (e.g. chown), which shall be updated over time. -end-
