comment Linux: what is a most convenient way to see the content of .jar file
if you'd use 'mc' in linux you would knew that you can browse over content of zip/jar file, because it makes unzipping on fly. My question was about the alternative to 'mc', because I heard a lot of linux guru saying they can avoid 'mc' and use pure command line with the same result and efficiency. And I cannot 'clicking' on zip file as far as I'm on the linux server command line

@ekaj less and unzip doesnt help me - it doesn't show me the size of files in the archive for example, or date&time of last modification (unless I'll decompress it somewhere to /tmp/AAA and then will run ls -la against /tmp/AAA - which is what I want to avoid).

I can't install additional stuff to server, unless I wouldn't ask this question just by installing MC

comment Is Midnight Commander tool a convenient software to have on a Linux machine?
@slhck Ok, so maybe I want to hear the real arguments, why only few people (at least professionals) use it? They like to look like linux geeks typing and typing in the console? it's some sort of snobism? :)

I can work without it of course. I just know that typing long command (for example. You have to copy some files from one folder to another. And, you forget the location of folder. tab is not an option, you can spend ages sorting out right folder if you just forgot the name. You probably will need to run some ls commands before cp. INSTEAD, in mc, you just press some 'insert' several times, one 'tab' and then F5!) takes more time than doing it in the MC

@slhck I know basic commands, I'm writing shell scripts. But, I have a feeling that I spend more time typing command cp with all needed arguments instead of just pressing F5 in mc. So it's not the question of ability, it's question about efficiency

and I'm quite proficient in writing scripts, but it's just easier to not spending the time typing all that commands

thanks for nano, I didn't knew about it. Looks like it has more human helpful interface than vim/emacs
