I'm trying out midnight commander (loved Norton back in the day!) and I'm finding two things hard to work out. I'm curious if there's ways around this or not however.
1) If the panels are active and I issue a command that has a lot of output, it appears to be lost forever.
i.e., if the panels are visible and I cat something (i.e., cat /proc/cpuinfo), that info is gone forever once the panels get redrawn.
Is there anyway to see the output? I've tried 'ctrl-o', but it appears to just give me a fresh sub-shell and wipes the previous output away. Pausing after every invocation is a bit irritating, so I'd rather not use that option.
2) Tab completion for commands
When mc is running, it consumes the tab character for switching panels. Is there any way to get around this so I can still type in paths and what not on the command line?
I'm running cygwin if that matters at all.
