What Is 'twander'?
------------------

'twander' is a macro-programmable Filesystem Browser which runs on both
Unix-like systems as well as Win32 systems. It embraces the best ideas
of both similar GUI-driven programs (Konqueror, Windows Explorer) as
well as text-based interfaces (Midnight Commander, List, Sweep).


Or, If You Prefer The "Elevator Pitch"
--------------------------------------

'twander' is:

    - A better file browser for Unix and Win32. (Tested on FreeBSD, Linux, Win32.)
    - A way to make browsing the same on all the OSs you use.
    - A macro-programmable tool that lets *you* define the features.
    - A GUI navigation front-end for your shell.
    - A way to "can" workflows for your technically-challenged colleagues.
    - A way to free yourself from the shackles of the mouse.
    - A way to significantly speed up your day-to-day workflow.
    - A Python/Tkinter application - about 3100/1300 lines of code/comments
    - A RCT (Really Cool Tool) that will have you addicted in a day or two

See the web page for more information and a screen shot. Better still,
download the tarball and read the documentation.
