Provides additional shell information in graphical environments

'viewglob' is a utility designed to complement the *nix shell in graphical environments. It consists of a tool that sits as a layer between the shell and X terminal, keeping track of the user's current directory and command-line, and a GUI display which shows the layouts of directories referenced on the command-line. This display also shows the results of file globs and expansions as they are typed, highlighting selected files and potential name completions. 'viewglob' works in conjunction with the most popular shells while using any xterm.
