clex: Simplified file management

I remember clex as one of the first console-only programs I used. Mostly because it looks so much like the old cplay.

In the way of single-pane file managers, clex does a good job making things simple, with menu-driven settings, one-button help access and a config script to arrange stuff for you.

Sorting is also quick too, with an ALT-s key that shows any and all variations open to you.

But probably my favorite point has always been the ALT-w jump between directories, with a tree arrangement that works very quickly.

For more than that, I’ll let you explore. It’s a simple application and easy to master. 🙂

P.S.: I almost forgot to mention: What you see there is the Debian version transplanted into Arch via deb2targz. The AUR version crumples like a cheap suit for me when I try to run it. See what you come up with.
