Is there a way to open a console in the current folder, probably with a shortcut? I really miss this feature.
The other things muCommander really lacks in my opinion:
- background file operations (on Mac OS X it is especially a demanding need)
- file search (you may say: use grep. That's OK for me temporarily, but the "open console in current dir" feature would be necessary for that, too. And on the other hand it would be nice to have the results listed in a panel like in TotalCommander, Krusader, etc.)
Usability/productivity would be rehabilitated with these features... until then muCommander is a tool for opening movies and copying things in my passtime, unfortunately not suitable for serious work.
Another idea: it would be nice to be able to fetch the output of a console program into a temporary panel. Say you have a file list as an output from a locate, find, ls, custom script, etc. and it could be piped into muCommander. I guess it is no science fiction and lots and lots of my colleagues would definitely use that. It would certainly need some features which are nonexistent up to now, like the temporary panel entity itself and probably a dedicated thread for listening to such incoming data. Imagine though how many possibilities would open with such a feature with relatively small amount of work.
I am a professional Java programmer for about 8 years now and a cross-platform programmer overall for 15 years, so please tell me if I can help with any of the above.
