Fedora Update Notification
Name : mc
Version : 4.6.0
Release : 8.4
Summary : User-friendly text console file manager and visual shell.
Description : Midnight Commander is a visual shell much like a file manager, only with many more features. It is a text mode application, but it also includes mouse support if you are running GPM. Midnight Commander's best features are its ability to FTP, view tar and zip files, and to poke into RPMs for specific files.
