VFU File Manager
VF File Manager for UNIX (c) Vladi Belperchinov-Shabanski 1997-2011


  Short description | Platforms | Respond | Download+Screenshots



i. Description

VFU is console (text mode) file manager for UNIX/Linux.

I made all possible to make VFU cover all file managing needs and offer large set of behaviour options. If I succeeded or not, you can decide for yourself but without trying I believe noone can say for sure.

Thank you if you did try VFU! If you still haven't, you are welcome to do so :)

Remember that 'H' key inside the main VFU list is _HELP_ information!

Good luck! External info about VFU:

             Thank you!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Platform   : GNU Hurd
Maintainer : None
Notes      : I've been told that VFU runs without problems on the Hurd platform.
             Maintainer wanted!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Platform   : Solaris
Maintainer : None
Notes      : Compiles flawlessly ( with some header locations changes ),
             but since I have no access to Solaris machines, there's no maintainer...
             Maintainer wanted!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Platform   : DOS
Maintainer : Vladi Belperchinov-Shabanski mailto:cade@biscom.net
Notes      : Works fine. Supports LFN under Win95/98 when compiled with DJGPP.
             Support for DOS will be dropped in near future!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Generally, VFU should compile on every UNIX platform if there's curses library available...
If someone have compiled VFU for some other OS, please, tell me.
