33 <application>MC</application> (Midnight Commander) is a text-mode
34 full-screen file manager and visual shell. It provides a clear,
35 user-friendly, and somewhat protected interface to a Unix system while
36 making many frequent file operations more efficient and preserving the
37 full power of the command prompt.
