kme : mc   12

linux - Making 256-color AND Line drawing characters both work in PuTTY - Super User
This did *not* work for me on 'down'.
Export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1 to your environment, it should fix the problem by telling ncurses to always use Unicode box drawing characters when a UTF-8 locale is selected.

is it possible to configure an external diff tool?
I would like to use meld in case I need to diff a directory.

Current I do it like this
in panel1: cd ..
in panel2: cd ..
type command 'meld '
press ENTER to execute the command

I would like to reduce the number of steps needed to compare the two
selected directories without leaving them.

A: Read the "Macro Substitution" subsection in mc manual page.

Rob on Programming: Inputrc for bash history completion using up/down arrows

# Source:

# By default up/down are bound to previous-history
# and next-history respectively. The following does the
# same but gives the extra functionality where if you
# type any text (or more accurately, if there is any text
# between the start of the line and the cursor),
# the subset of the history starting with that text
# is searched (like 4dos for e.g.).
# Note to get rid of a line just Ctrl-C
"\e[B": history-search-forward
"\e[A": history-search-backward

$if Bash
# F10 toggles mc on and off
# Note Ctrl-o toggles panes on and off in mc
"\e[21~": "mc\C-M"

#do history expansion when space entered
Space: magic-space

# Include system wide settings which are ignored
# by default if one has their own .inputrc
$include /etc/inputrc
