linux default iconMidnight Commander for Linux Publisher's description

GNU Midnight Commander is a visual file manager, licensed under GNU General Public License and therefore qualifies as Free Software.

GNU Midnight Commander is a visual file manager, licensed under GNU General Public License and therefore qualifies as Free Software. It's a feature rich full-screen text mode application that allows you to copy, move and delete files and whole directory trees, search for files and run commands in the subshell. Internal viewer and editor are included.

Midnight Commander is based on versatile text interfaces, such as Ncurses or S-Lang, which allows it to work on a regular console, inside an X Window terminal, over SSH connections and all kinds of remote shells.

This site hosts the new home of the Midnight Commander. Due to the recent restructuring of the development team, the main project repository was moved from Savannah to this new Git repository.
