Ehh, the qtcmd .pet has problems.

Beesoft Commander 4.01 looks nice though. I like it better than xfe. Not quite so feature-rich as qtcmd alleges to be, but all bsc requires is technosaurus's libQtCore-4.5.2.pet. Its internal text editor and pic viewer are fast and the pic viewer is quite good quality.

If you bump your foreheads to the floor three times while chanting "Sit Heel Speak is Supreme Khan of the Earth," I'll reveal the four perl tricks I had to learn, to get bsc to compile.

Before I PET it up, I'm awaiting an answer from bsc's author. As you can see (look at the highlight in right panel), it doesn't handle such a dirname as "puppy422-k2.6.29.6" correctly, and a couple of other questions need clearing up.

I updated the browser and compiled it with the following mods in the makefile to shrink it by over 60%

CFLAGS amd CXXFLAGS - replaced -O2 with:
-Os -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections -s -momit-leaf-frame-pointer -fomit-frame-pointer -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -fmerge-constants

LFLAGS - added:
-Wl,--gc-sections

then stripped the binary with:
strip --strip-all --remove-section=.comment --remove-section=.note browser

This works extremely well on nearly every program I have tested with 10-65% size reduction. The only exception is some programs that have intermediate static libraries like abiword (you need to compile it without the LFLAGS, delete the binary, add the LFLAGS and recompile in that case)

For anyone into QT apps, there are now "many forks" of antico, as the original author went to OSX: various unnamed forks; antico light; QDE; Antico Deluxe (active) and RWM (active).
