     22 .Ar dir
     23 is a relative path,

     25 will not go back beyond the first component of the path using standard
     26 navigation key presses.

     98 .Xr nopen 1
     99 to open a file in the user's preferred application.
    100 .Sh FILTERS
    101 Filters allow you to use regexes to display only the matched
    102 entries in the current directory view.
    103 This effectively allows searching through the directory tree
    104 for a particular entry.
    105 .Pp
    106 Filters do not stack on top of each other.
    107 They are applied anew every time.
    108 .Pp
    109 To reset the filter you can input an empty filter expression.
    110 .Pp
    111 If
    112 .Nm
    113 is invoked as root the default filter will also match hidden files.
    114 .Sh ENVIRONMENT

    121 .Ic \&! ,
    122 .Ic e
    123 and
    124 .Ic p
    125 commands respectively.
