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.
- FileMan †
- FileRunner †
- 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.
- iFile: a little file system browser ‡
- LemonTree ‡
- next-style file manager †
- Not A Commander (nac)
- tkfileman †
- WISH File Rusher
- x-files †
- David S. Cargo 2002-09-25: I have used on a variety of systems is X-Files . I have not seen any signs of recent development (like this century), but I used the version 1.43 on a variety of systems.
† These file managers no longer have a live project website. ‡ This is only a file browser without copy/move features.
