Hello Mathias, this is great !!!!
It works perfect.

I did it with LinuXtree too, but I think there is no point of
comparation....

Hey !! Peter Kelly must have spent quite a lot of months to get
to work this as it works, if this is an alpha release, I can hardly
imagine the first official release.!!! Wow...

Congratulations Peter, as it happened with XTree in the 80's
I think that this tool could kill some tabooes about Unix Systems
and it's a great way to understand Linux as well.

Peter:
I wonder this:

If almost all the code of Linux is free (GNU) and some developers
has the same philosophy,

Is there a problem if you try to save time and try to incorporate maybe
the "mc" viewer and editor into xtc as well ??

I know you can develope them, but maybe it could be a great amount
of time saved.

What do you think ?

----------------

Thanks again Mathias, I wonder if I can ask you some other
Linux related questions, maybe here in the forum or via email.

Regards
