It was initially implemented to be controlled +with a TV remote control. +.Pp +.Nm +supports both vi-like and emacs-like key bindings in the default +configuration. The default key bindings are described below; +their functionality is described in more detail later. +.Pp +.Bl -tag -width "h | Left | BackspaceXXXX" -offset indent -compact +.It Ic k | Up | C-p +Move to previous entry. +.It Ic j | Down | C-n +Move to next entry. +.It Ic Pgup | C-u +Scroll backwards one page. +.It Ic Pgdown | C-d +Scroll forwards one page. +.It Ic l | Right | C-m +Open file or enter directory. +.It Ic h | Left | Backspace +Back up one directory level. +.It Ic / | & +Filter view (see below for more details). +.It Ic ! +Spawn shell in current directory. +.It Ic c +Change into the given directory. +.It Ic q +Quit +.Nm . +.Sh CONFIGURATION +.Nm +is configured by modifying +.Pa config.h +and recompiling the code. +.Pp +The file associations are specified by regexes +matching on the currently selected filename. If a match is found the associated +program is executed with the filename passed in as the argument. If no match +is found the program less(1) is invoked. This is useful for editing text files +as one can use the 'v' command in less(1) to edit the file in $EDITOR. +.Pp +See the examples section below for more information. +.Sh FILTERS +Filters allow you to use regexes to display only the matched +entries in the current directory view. This effectively allows +searching through the directory tree for a particular entry. +.Pp +Filters do not stack on top of each other. They are applied anew +every time. +.Pp +To reset the filter you can use the match-any regex (i.e. '.'). +.Sh EXAMPLES +The following example shows one possible configuration for +file associations.
