Bug Description

Binary package hint: mc

MC is sometimes useful for managing files or even writing programs. I use mc all the time, but some of its bugs exist for years. This patch aggreagtes some useful features:

1) Fix for busy subshell (thanks to Slavaz, http://people.redhat-club.org/slavaz/trac/)
2) Alt+'.' to show/hide hidden files (starting with ".") (thanks to Andrew, http://www.linux.org.ru/whois.jsp?nick=andreyu)
3) Alt+',' to toggle vertical/horizontal layout of panels
4) Added new rules (Qt-related macroses) for syntax highlighting in C++
5) Added new masks for syntax highlighting: 'H' for FLTK headers, 'moc'
   for Qt-generated files, 'hpp' for C++
6) Added new rules for syntax highlighting in C/C++ (highlighting of numeric literals from javascript)
7) Added size info of current mount point in "mini info bar" (like in mc-mp)
8) Alt+O <=> Alt+I. Alt+I sucks. Sad, but true.
9) File colorizing depending on its type (thanks to X-Stranger, http://forum.linux.by/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2)
10) Removed useless *~ files from autgen-run.patch
11) Added CSS (including Qt stylesheets) and AWK rules for syntax highlighting (from mc-mp)
12) Removed asm.syntax. Why do we need it?

How to install:

1) Download mc and patch from http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/mc
2) Unpack mc
3) Apply patch
4) Download this patch
5) Apply this patch
6) Build mc as usual with dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot

This patch won't be supported by me. Use it for your own risk. I hope some features will be intergrated into upstream version.

Please break all the (still) relevant pieces of this patch in separate diffs and submit as tickets to our official Trac. This way it will get into official Ubuntu package ASAP.

I think this bug should be closed as wontfix.
