File README last modified: 27.02.2001 One window, four rows: source directory, source files, dest directory, dest files You can do most of the things you usually do with a file manager, like copy, move, rename, delete, but also view and edit a lot of file types. This is done with external applications, like xv, emacs, mtvp, ... At the moment you can change this applications in the perl file (ugly I know, but this will change some day). Mafima navigation is a little bit like in a WWW browser, you can go down one directory with a down button, you have a hotlist (like Bookmarks or Favorits) and you have a history list of directorys - to jump back to any directory you have already visited with just one mouse click. I wrote Mafima just for me, to see what's possible with Perl/Tk, but maybe someone else can use it too ... Of course I give no warranty at all, so if you accidently delete all you files, corrupt your harddisk or burn down your computer it's your own problem. I use Mafima as my one and only file manager now, and it works pretty good for me ... ########################################################################## # # Copyright # ########################################################################## 1999-2000 Martin Herrmann.
