a long time ago, in 1993, i had a 386 box with dos, wp51 and the norton commander. with the norton commander i could talk to a person behind the key-board of another computer and send my workfiles (made with wp5.1, that marvellous editing program). the 386 is dismantled. the hd of 150 mb is still completely loaded in my possession.

i suppose the midnight commander was directly derived from the norton commander. or not ?? if yes: where can i find more info on this development?. just out of curiosity.

The mc mailing list?

But I don't get any answers when I ask questions.
E.g. how to decode macros.


thanks hugo. i found all the answers in a wifi-file: mc is indeed an unix-clone of the nc.
