WISH File Rusher 2015 is a light, fast two-column file manager.



It requires Tcl and Tk 8.5 or greater. (I write code in Tcl for some of the same reasons I speak English: I learned how to do it a long time ago; it works; and I haven't found anything better that would be easy to learn.) For best results, download and install ActiveTcl 8.6.4 Community Edition (http://www.activestate.com/activetcl/downloads), then add your ActiveTcl /bin directory to your PATH and also s-link the "tclsh" and "wish" executables to /usr/bin.

Features, in addition to the basic two-column file management ones, include browser-like navigation buttons (Bookmarks, Home, Back, Forth, Go); easy-to-use listing of file associations with programs for opening and editing files; assortment of built-in or custom color schemes; listing of selected files in default text editor; quick backup of files in listed directories that have been added or modified since last backup date; directory size calculation, and more.

I think I checked it out fairly thoroughly for bugs, but suggestions for bugfixes (if any) or improvements are welcome.

Installed from the pet: no workee:
Code:
root# ./wishrush
Error in startup script: can't read "::cutlines": no such variable
    while executing
"set figlines "# WISH File Rusher configuration file (rushfig.tcl) \n\nset ask $::ask \nset show $::show \nset dir(left) \"$::dir(left)\" \nset dir(rig..."
    (procedure "savefig" line 4)
    invoked from within
"savefig"
    (procedure "read_dir" line 69)
    invoked from within
"read_dir left"
    (file "./wishrush" line 2689)

libtcl and libtk are both version 8.6.

Oops, looks like a worthless variable needed to be cut out of the script. (Don't know why it hasn't shown up on my computer.) I cut it out; try the revised .PET that's now attached above and see if you have any more problems.

Works now. Looks nice. Not going to have much time to play with it for a week or two though. But, still, thanks for updating it Smile

You're welcome! Let me know if you think it needs any improvements after you've used it for a little while.
