3.1 The GIT file system browser

gitfm is a file system browser with some shell like features designed to make your work much easier and much efficient. It displays one or two panels, each one containing a file system directory. You can browse the directory tree with the usual cursor keys, pressing ENTER when you want to enter or leave a directory and TAB when you want to change the panels.

Under the two panels there is a shell like input line which you can use to type normal shell commands. The input line can handle an unlimited number of characters and keeps a history of typed commands (using the GNU history library).

Under the input line there is a status bar. You can see there the status of the currently executed command, the warnings and errors and you will be prompted if a decision has to be taken.
