PostPosted: Wed 20 Jan 2010, 23:00    Post subject: Saving/exporting a tree?  

G'day,

Can this file manager save a directory tree as a text file? And even better would be saving some file-size data as well.

I occasionally like to make a record of what's on a disk (files, sizes, dates) and load this into a spreadsheet.

Or is there another Puppy program that will do this easily?

Thanks,
David S.

That sounds like something I've done.

Here is a program called "Tree" which I think might do what you want.

what i've forgot to mention is it's ability to 'install' pets (thanks to MikeB). as it opens pet-files in a virtual filesystem, you could simple browse the package and copy the included dirs to /.

If you want a visual directory tree, the Tree program Flash suggested is a good start.

If you want file size data, a command line will do it:
Code:

ls -lR / > filelist.txt &


This does a recursive directory list and redirects the output to the specified file. The trailing & tells the shell to run it as a background process. You can substitute whatever directory you want to be the starting point for / above, and provide a full path to the file listing to specify where it is created.

Thank you. Works great in Lupu 5. My older .pet files were not working for it. Gotta have my mc.

PostPosted: Tue 20 Jul 2010, 17:00    Post subject: Newer versions  

I had compiled MC-4.7.2 a while back but never uploaded it and was going to today... and then noticed that 4.7.3 was released 2 weeks ago, so I compiled that one as well.

Instead of creating a new thread... i'll just upload the newer versions here.

These were compiled in puppy v5 with a kernel of 2.6.33.2

MC 4.7.2
MC 4.7.3

hi I downloaded the latter file and it 'installed' under category 'none' . I am running Lupus 5.10 and am an ab. beginner....

I tried to find mc-commander with pfind but ....no chance...
How do I run it?
How do I get a link under my category filesystem and how do I get it on the desktop?

besides, as you may have guessed I am a Windows user but I started when we used NortonCommander V1..... now I am a TC fan but think it is good when I stick to sth like it under Puppy too.

thanks

To run midnight commander, as it doesn't have any mc.desktop file in /usr/share/applications....

You just type mc (lowercase) in console/terminal

Hi Paul

ok, could run it that way. Anyway, since I am a beginner that is no great benefit for me since I like to use a filemanager often. Any alteratives?

Would be great. Thanks

Yep, here is a little code for a mc.desktop file, copy code into geany, save it to /usr/share/applications/mc.desktop

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Midnight Commander
GenericName=MC
Comment=Awesome filemanager
Exec=mc /
TryExec=mc /
Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/apps/mc.png
Terminal=true
Categories=Utility;
StartupNotify=true


just change the Categories field if you want it in a different place on the menu.

Hope this helps.
Paul
