Command line file manager?


I saw a post in which someone mentioned a utility for looking around disks - but can not remember what it was. Something like cm. I used it once and want to have a look at it again, but can not remember the correct name. It reminded me of Norton File manager for DOS.

Anyone know what I'm talking about

Thanks.

A file manager....it shows you what files you have in any given directory, and allows you to copy/move/extract/view/etc these files. Basically the same thing you'd get from something like Konqueror only without the double-click/drag-n-drop features, and it's lighter and faster.
