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.

vulnerabilities, and one format string vulnerability have been
discovered in Midnight Commander.  These vulnerabilities were
discovered mostly by Andrew V. Samoilov and Pavel Roskin.  The Common
