Introduction to Mc

MC (Midnight Commander) is a text-mode full-screen file manager and visual shell. It provides a clear, user-friendly, and somewhat protected interface to a Unix system while making many frequent file operations more efficient and preserving the full power of the command prompt.

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

patch -Np1 -i ../mc-4.6.2-pre1-debian_fixes-1.patch &&
CPPFLAGS="-DUTF8" \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
   --libexecdir=/usr/lib --enable-mcfs \
   --enable-charset --enable-extcharset &&
make

To assist in the conversion of the manual pages to the proper encoding for the directory in which they are installed, the convert-mans script was written. It will convert manual pages to another encoding before (or after) installation. Install the convert-mans script with the following instructions:

cat >> convert-mans << "EOF"
#!/bin/sh -e
FROM="$1"
TO="$2"
shift ; shift
while [ $# -gt 0 ]
do
        FILE="$1"
        shift
        iconv -f "$FROM" -t "$TO" "$FILE" >.tmp.iconv
        mv .tmp.iconv "$FILE"
done
EOF
install -v -m755 convert-mans  /usr/bin
