I have never looked at mc's code. One thing that's bad about Ranger's code is the multiple instances of:

Code:
try:
    value = dictionary[key]
except:
    pass
Those should be either:

Code:
try:
    value = dictionary[key]
except KeyError:
    pass
Or

Code:
if key in dictionary:
    value = dictionary[key]
Or
Code:
value = dictionary.get(key)
Any of those three would have been better.

Keep in mind that I program in Python for a living.

Hmm ok, thanks. I think I can see why that's bad practice: it will mask actual errors that aren't just the one he's expecting, making it hard to debug.

Dolphin. If a file manager doesn't have split view, I don't even consider it. I used to use DirWork extensively on the Amiga.

libc FTW! It might require some more typing (and sometimes compiling before executing), but it can do everything, i.e., far more than any other file manager known to man. Most versatile and already installed everywhere.

Dolphin has won the title for five straight years, with Thunar coming in second. I use and like them both.

I just got around to trying this. It's amazing once you set $ROVER_OPEN to xdg-open.

I plan to vote for vifm this year, but rover is a very nice complement to it.
