Curses based file manager for system managers

cdls is a curses-based file manager for quickly browsing directories and files. The screen can be dynamically adjusted to include all information like ‘ls -ail’, or just the filenames multi-column, or anything in between.

All basic file and directory manipulations are possible with 1 keystroke copy, move, delete, view, execute, change owner/group/mode, edit, diff, link hard/symbolic, wc, tail -f, cksum, hexdump and many others. Documentation is self-contained in cdls and consists of two screens from which each option or subject can be selected to show its info screen.
