NAME
gitfm - GNU Interactive Tools File Manager SYNTAX
gitfm [options] [path1] [path2] DESCRIPTION
gitfm is a file system browser with some shell facilities which was designed to make your work easier and more efficient. The GNUIT package also contains gitps, an interactive process viewer/killer and gitview, a hex/ascii file viewer. More extensive documentation on gitfm and the other gnuit tools is available in info format, try 'info gnuit'. OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the Info files. -h Show summary of options. -v Show version of program. -c Use ANSI colours. -b Don't use ANSI colours. -l Don't use last screen character. -p Output the final path on exit NOTE
The main configuration file of the GNUIT package is gnuitrc.TERM where TERM is the value of the environment variable 'TERM' e.g for Linux console your environment contains something like 'TERM=linux' so the configuration file name is gnuitrc.linux. You can (and should) have a configuration file for each terminal type you use. If you customise git, the version of the config file in your home directory should have a leading ".", eg .gnuitrc.linux. FILE-SYSTEM BROWSER gitfm is made of two panels. The left one and the right one. Each one contains a file system directory. You can browse the directory tree with the usual cursor keys and pressing ENTER when you want to enter or leave a directory. You may change the panels by pressing TAB. See also BUILT-IN COMMANDS. INPUT LINE
Under the two panels there is a shell like input line which you can use to type normal shell commands. The input line supports unlimited characters and keeps a history of the typed commands. gitfm uses the GNU history library for that. See also BUILT-IN COMMANDS. WARNINGS AND ERRORS REPORTING
Under the input line there is a status bar. You can see there the status of the currently executed command, the warnings and errors and you will be prompted if a decision has to be taken. BUGS

NAME
gitaction - GNU Interactive Tools - per file type action script SYNTAX
gitaction directory file .gitaction directory file DESCRIPTION
gitaction is a script that executes a different action for each file type specified. It is called by the gitfm program when pressing F2 or ^Xa (see the gnuitrc.TERM configuration files in the gnuit manual). The first parameter is the current directory name and the second one is the file name to be matched against the default patterns. The matching is done using the shell 'case' statement. If you press F2 or ^Xa on a *.html file, gitfm will invoke a browser to view it, if you press F2 or ^Xa on a *.tar.gz file, gitfm will list the tar archive contents, if you press the same keys on a *.gz file, gitfm will display its uncompressed contents on the screen, etc ... If you press F2 or ^Xa on a *.gif file or *.jpg file and you have the zgv utility installed, you will be able to see it. If you want to change the gif/jpeg viewer, all you need to do is to change its name in the gitaction script. There are many more file types and viewers that gitaction knows about. In addition, if you are running under GNOME, gnome-open is used, and on MacOS, open(1) is used. see(1) and metamail(1) are also used as fallbacks. If all else fails, the file is displayed using $GNUIT_PAGER. Feel free to change this. If you want to find out what the default action for each file type is (or if you want to modify it), just read/modify the gitaction script. The script can be easily enhanced. Just read it. The .gitaction script is a local version of the gitaction script. When started, gitaction tries to search a script called .gitaction in the current directory and, if it finds it, it starts it. If .gitaction's exit code is 0 ( .gitaction couldn't find a matching pattern), gitac- tion starts its own case statement trying to match the current file name (the second parameter) against its default patterns. The .gitaction script *must* be executable. An example of .gitaction can be found in the directory gitfm is installed into. (usually /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin) Debian users can find it in /usr/share/doc/gnuit/examples/. You should copy the example to the current direc- tory or your home directory and then modify it. BUGS
