After 6 months since last release, I bring you a new version (0.9) of lfm. Read more and download it in next link:
lfm is a 'midnight commander'-clone written in Python and licensed under GNU Public License. It should work on any UNIX with a modern (n)curses library and Python curses module compiled in. See README file or visit the web page for more information.
Changes since version 0.8:
Version 0.9 ("...and the day arrived") - 2002/09/05:
+ ZIP files can be un/compressed now. ZIP vfs works too + added 'rebuild vfs' and 'rebuild_vfs' question / option. Configurable. There is no need to wait until vfs file is rebuilt + Applied some good patches from Bartosz Oler: 1. colors customization: Now you can customize the colors lfm use in the configuration file, 'colors' section. Each color is defined by a string with its name. It looks like this: element foreground_color background_color 2. Allow preferences values to contain colons in the configuration file. 3. Lack of a bookmark's definition shouldn't be an error. + pyview: new features: - read from stdin - go to / set bookmarks - open shell + pyview doesn't show blank screen a the end of the file, now it shows last line + lfm works now with "from __future__ import division", prepared for Python 3.0 + set python2 as default interpreter for setup.py, lfm, lfm.py, pyview and pyview.py + my email address has changed + Bugs fixes. See ChangeLog for complete list - lfm: * create temporary files with mask 0066 and directories with perms 0700, so only owner can read/write them * avoid zombie processes when using 'fork' (now fork twice or threads) * show correct filename when an error occurs while uncompressing file * don't compress '..' directory * when lfm exits after checking command line options, make 'lfm' shell script don't show path error * when un/compressing files cursorbar must remain in the same file * when, at start, lfm can't enter into a dir due to directory permissions * crash if len(line) == width of cursorbar window * don't append '*' to historic in entries * fix cursor bar position after sorting - pyview: * when user hasn't permissions to read file, exit gracefully instead of crashing * last char in file is not showed
As always, comments and suggestions are welcome.
