Xplorer File Manager


Xplorer is a filemanager for POSIX conformant operating systems using the X-Window-System (X11).

You can navigate in your local file system and launch applications.

Xplorer figures out file types and launches an application appropriate to process these files.

You can get information about files, move, copy or delete them.

Most of the functionality is inherited from C++X (libcxxx), a shared library written from scratch. C++X and Xplorer are developed in parallel at present, but in the future there will be other applications using C++X. Until then, C++X is only available as part of the Xplorer package.

C++X has built-in support for internationalization, including bidirectional text support. English, German, Spanish and hebrew language is offered at the moment. The tool Intlize needed to create translations is located at http://intlize.sourceforge.net.

One goal of C++X is to minimize dependencies on other programs/libraries, Xplorer should run on every POSIX box with a working X-Window-System with XRender extension.
