1. Introduction

GNUIT is a set of interactive tools. It contains an extensible file system browser, an ascii/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer and some other related utilities and shell scripts. It can be used to increase the speed and efficiency of most of the daily tasks such as copying and moving files and directories, invoking editors, compressing and uncompressing files, creating and expanding archives, compiling programs, sending mail, etc. It looks nice, has colors (if the standard ANSI color sequences are supported) and is user-friendly.

GNUIT runs on a wide variety of UNIX systems because it uses the GNU Autoconf package to get system specific information. Please refer to the PLATFORMS file included in the standard distribution for a detailed list of systems on which GNUIT has been tested.

One of the main advantages of GNUIT is its flexibility. It is not limited to a given set of commands. The configuration file can be easily enhanced, allowing the user to add new commands or file operations, depending on its needs or preferences.

GNUIT also provides a shell like command prompt, just to make sure that the entire power of the UNIX shell commands is still there.
