Double Commander is a cross platform open source file manager with two panels side by side. It is inspired by Total Commander and features some new ideas.
Initially, the project was developed as a free alternative to the popular file manager – Total Commander. However, in the process of development of this program evolved into a separate and powerful application that combines all the main functionality of Total Commander (including support for its plugins), as well as some of its own special, convenient and useful options.
Here are some key features of Double Commander:
*All operations working in background
*Internal text editor (F4) with syntax hightlighting
