SYNOPSYS

txplor [directory]

 

DESCRIPTION

If there is no command line argument, the current directory will be displayed.

To exit, press '/' followed by 'q'.

Default operation provides a hilighted directory tree pane on the left and a list of files from the hilighted directory in the pane on the right. The bottom, full width command pane shows the available commands for the hilighted/tagged directory/files in the above panes.

Entering a single keystroke will cause a search of the remaining (lower down) names for the first occurrence starting with that char.

To change the active pane, press <Tab> key or single-click with the mouse. Directory pane is active when only a directory is hilighted. The file list pane is active when a file and the directory containing the file are hilighted. Clicking the mouse in the non-active directory or file pane switches to that pane. The command pane is not selectable.

A single scrollbar supports both windows. The active pane responds to scrollbar motion.

Entering a '/' char displays a list of commands to perform on the hilighted/tagged directory/files. Select the desired command by pressing the capitalized or control (^ prefixed) key from the displayed list of commands. Each pane has its own specific set of commands.

In either pane, up/down, page-up/page-down and Home/End keys move the hilighted cursor by one line, by one screen or to top/bottom respectively.

In the directory pane, pressing either the <Enter> or right arrow keys will expand the directory tree for sub-directory containing directories (indicated by a directory name ending in a '/'). The left arrow key will collapse an hilighted expanded tree.

In the file-list pane, right and left arrow scroll the hilighted entry to show details which do not fit in the pane.

The <Enter> key or a mouse double-click on a previously hilighted file will view/execute the hilighted file by applying the 'x' shell script to it.

The 'x' shell script selects the desired operation to perform on the file using the secondary shell script 'mime_start', which interprets according to file extension. Both scripts must be in the search path. See the shell scripts

If the file is executable for the current user, but is found in the 'view' section of 'mime_start', it will be viewed. If the file is not executable and is not found in 'mime_start', it will be viewed with the default viewer, xedit, specified in 'mime_start'.

Right clicking on a hilighted file will pop up a 'sendto' menu which will send the hilighted file to the mouse specified menu option. See the accompanying doc for 'menu', 'sendto' and 'SendTo.menu' for details.
