mc - Midnight Commander is a text based filemanager/shell that emulates Norton Commander

GNU Midnight Commander (also referred to as MC) is a user shell much like the (in)famous Norton Commander with text-mode full-screen interface. It can be run on the OS console, in xterm and other terminal emulators.

GNU Midnight Commander allows you to manage files while making most of your screen and giving you a clear representation of the filesystem, yet it's simple enough to be run over a telnet or ssh session.

MC needs several other programs for its various extfs extensions, e.g. isoinfo (from mkisofs) or xorriso for the iso:// extension.
