fman is an alternative to file managers such as Explorer on Windows or
Finder on OS X. You use it to browse directories, copy or move
files, mount external drives, etc. It lets you perform these tasks much more
efficiently than other file managers.
fman always displays the contents of two directories:
This makes it extremely easy to copy or move files. You just open the
directory you want to copy from on one side and the destination on the
other. A simple keyboard shortcut then performs the copy. Unlike other
file managers, you don't have to deal with multiple windows, drag
files or copy/paste in separate steps. File-related tasks can be carried out
much more quickly that way.
The special ingredient that makes fman so fast are its keyboard
shortcuts. These are described on
the next page.
