pftp allows you to send and receive files and directories recursively, send and receive standard input and ouput, filter your connection, set the net buffer size, set the bandwidth, send UDP datagrams unicasted, broadcasted, and multicasted (which is meant for AUDIO and VIDEO streaming), send data to another user and manage that data, perform a network test based on either UDP or TCP, and use optimized buffers for your Gigabit Ethernet links. pftp can start from command line, as a daemon, or by inetd. All features are supported for IPv4 and IPv6.
Dealing with the UNIX command line, especially in order to manipulate the file system, is one of the biggest hurdles to widespread use of Unix and Linux. System G was written to provide a simple way to access to the file system in the form of a graphical hierarchy of files and folders.
UnixTree is a powerful and versatile console-mode file manager, modeled very closely after the distinguished DOS program XTreeGold. It provides both a fast and catchy interface for daily file and directory maintenance needs, as well as the ability to perform sophisticated tasks on arbitrary selections of particular files, all across the directory tree.
Vshnu is a visual shell for Linux/Unix finally done right. Best used as an optional color visual mode to a regular command line shell, vshnu is handy for powerful directory listing and navigation, Unix command assembly, special actions on file types, and fileset handling. Written in Perl for portability and high configurability, it also provides the advantages of a Perl interpreter as part of your Unix shell environment.
Worker is a file manager for the X Window System with the classical two panel interface. It features a fully graphical configuration, while still allowing manual editing of the configuration file without the need to restart Worker. Any external program can be integrated easily into the GUI using buttons, hotkeys, and file type actions. Worker uses file recognition by file content or by filename extension (or both). Different actions with completely configurable commands can be assigned to each file type.
