Terminal based file manager

'pfm' is a terminal-based file manager. All commands are one- or two-key. It features colored filenames according to extension or type, a single-file and multiple-file mode, support for executing user-defined commands (including wildcards) with only two keystrokes, and uses the ReadLine library for friendly commandline editing.
