       nautilus - the GNOME File Manager

       nautilus  [--browser] [--check] [--load-session=file] [--no-default-window] [--no-desktop]
       [--quit] [location] [gnome-std-options]

       The GNOME File Manager is the primary graphical interface to the file system. It  provides
       access  to, and manipulation of, files and folders on both local and remote filesystems by
       giving a virtual view of them. The File Manager supports multiple view types to allow  you
       to  view  files and folders as an arrangement of icons, as a detailed list, or as a number
       of data-specific views which allow embedded viewing of text, images and other multi-media.

       Nautilus provides the desktop backdrop and its associated  icons  for  launching  applica-
       tions,  access to folders, the trash and removeable media (such as CD-ROMs and zip disks).
       The trash container is a special view of objects that have been removed from their  origi-
       nal  locations  but  not  yet permanently deleted from the system. Emptying the trash will
       delete these objects permanently.

       The side pane of the main window provides additional information about the folder  in  the
       current	view  as  well	as  allowing the user to add any arbitrary notes; for example, to
       describe the folder or its contents. A tree view of the filesystem is  also  available  on
       the side bar, which can be used to switch between the location of the main view and a his-
       tory view to show the recently viewed locations.

       The following options are supported:

       --browser		       Open a browser window.

       -c, --check		       Perform a quick set of self-check tests.

       -l, --load-session=file	       Load a saved session from  the  specified  file.   Implies

       -n, --no-default-window	       Only create windows for explicitly specified locations.

       --no-desktop		       Do not manage the desktop backdrop.

       -q, --quit		       Quit a currently running Nautilus application.

       gnome-std-options	       Standard  options available for use with most GNOME appli-
				       cations.  See gnome-std-options(5) for more information.

       The following operands are supported:

       location        The location to be viewed.  This location may be specified as a filesystem
		       directory (for example, /home/guest/Documents), or by using any of the URI
		       schemes	supported  by  Nautilus  (for  example,   http://www.sun.com   or

       0	Application exited successfully

       The following files are used by this application:

       /usr/bin/nautilus       The command-line executable for the GNOME file manager.
