Larsen Commander 1.6 Beta #7
December 13, 2004 by Leif Erik Larsen
Leif Erik Larsen has just (December 11 2004) released
version 1.6 beta #7 of his popular GUI file manager and
command shell, Larsen Commander.
Larsen Commander is a powerful GUI file manager and command shell
with a traditional look and feel inspired by the classic Norton Commander.
It combines the best of two very different worlds; - the command line and
the file management panels. Both available at the same time, even in
parallel while one or more commands are running in the background!
Larsen Commander is extremely useful espessially for advanced users
such as programmers and system administrators that knows the power and
the value of having the command line possibilities and the file operation
panels available at the same time and in the same shell window. In fact,
you can use Larsen Commander almost exactly the same way as you are using
the standard system shell, but with a large number of additional and
powerful features, such as the console monitor being scrollable and not
limited to those "stupid" 25 lines or so.
But Larsen Commander is not only for the advanced users. Even the novice
will find this piece of software very nice at hand. It makes the standard
file operations a play, such as copying, moving and renaming files and
directories. And of course the command line can be 100% disabled and hidden,
for those who never uses it anyway.
