WISH File Rusher 2011.2 (released 2011 Apr 19) is a simple file manager for Linux/Unix file systems, inspired by Henrik Harmsen's FileRunner 2.5.1. It's written (by me) in Tcl/GTK+, and available for download from Pa Penguin's Icebox (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/papenguinspacks.html#wishrush). Requires Tcl (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/tcl-8.5.6-v1.pet) and Gnocl (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/gnocl-0.9.95.pet). Features include the following, among others:

* Automated backup and restore lists can be quickly created and used; see my page on "Backing Up, Upgrading, and Restoring" (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/backup.html).

* Like FileRunner, WISH File Rusher uses the highly efficient "select-and-click" procedure for copying, moving, or linking files (i.e., just select the files from the left or right column and click a button in the middle column), rather than the less efficient "drag-and-drop" procedure.

* Navigation features include bookmarks and Top, Up, Home, Back, Forth, Match, and Go (history list) buttons.

* New subdirectories to any depth can be created simply by adding all subdirectory names to the left or right directory entry line and pressing Enter or clicking New Dir.

* Procedure for associating file types with programs for displaying or editing files is easy and obvious.

* File name, size, "time stamp," permissions (in 3-digit form), and owner are displayed at all times in left and right multi-column lists with flexible-width columns.

* Command button allows quick execution and display of output from a specified command using WISH Mini-Console (http://www.pa-mcclamrock.com/papenguinspacks.html#wishmin) (if installed) on all selected files.

* Size Up button allows quick calculation of total size of selected files or directories.

* Own/Grp and Perms buttons allow quick display and change of file owner, group, and permissions.

* Tar and Untar buttons allow easy creation and extraction of tar archives. Petget button allows single-click installation of .PET packages for Puppy Linux.

Also going to check out some of your other apps...
Thanks!

Thanks! Um . . . Embarassed one little thing, the Tar and Untar buttons are still there, but I took out the Zip and Unzip ones a while ago because I found some bugs and I wasn't using them. It looks like I forgot to remove the reference to them. If you'd really like to use them, I'll see about putting them back in and making them work right, in the next version. Before that, I think I'll remove the reference in my message!

In this version, the big new buttons are Backup and Restore; I'd especially like to get some feedback on those, if you find them useful.

Great, I'm looking forward to it--even if the feedback is about bugs you find but I didn't!

Dear P.A.,

Nice job. I would also like to see the tar and zip bits restored, if you have time. One other small wish (pardon the put): could you possibly tell the gnocl/gtk list widget to use striping? It makes long lists easier to read.

With kind regards,
vovchik

EDIT: I see you have stripes - on left click!
