File Managers  edit

The following are some file managers/browsers which have either been written in Tcl or make use of Tcl in some way.
Tcl/Tk 8.0 and ANSI C based file manager, either local or via ftp. GPS: When I first started using Linux (Redhat 5.2) FileRunner was great. It has a lot of features, and of course is written in Tcl/Tk. It's fairly easy to modify too. I haven't used it in years, because I now use terminals for almost everything in Unix, but I still recommend it. D. McC I agree. I've used FileRunner since 1999. It's the fastest and most comprehensible file manager I've seen on any operating system.
