Features

  • both an X windows database and a terminal database (which is used depends on your DISPLAY)
  • updatable in several ways
  • querying (extensions, applications, or everything). You can specify the database for this (X or term).
  • associated or equivalent file extensions (eg. htm, html OR wav, au)
  • can open directories, symbolic link targets, URLs, dotfiles, files with no extensions, mailto's
  • shell scripts in the extensions database (rather than an application) and shell script aliasing (root defined)
  • ignorable files (*.so, *.o, *.a, etc.) these are root defined.
  • ignorable extensions (bak, old). willl open foo.pl.bak as if it were foo.pl (these are user defined)
  • ignores '~' and '#' at the end of files. foo.pl~ or #foo.pl# are treated as foo.pl
  • ignores "special" files (like the ones in /dev) (is this a bug or a feature?)
