Section: GNU Midnight Commander (1)
Updated: September 2016
Index Return to Main Contents
 

NAME

mcview - Internal file viewer of GNU Midnight Commander.  

USAGE

mcview [-bcCdfhstVx?] file  

DESCRIPTION

mcview is a link to mc, the main GNU Midnight Commander executable. Executing GNU Midnight Commander under this name requests staring the internal viewer and opening the file specified on the command line.  

OPTIONS

-b
Force black and white display.
-c
Force color mode on terminals where mcview defaults to black and white.
-C <keyword>=<fgcolor>,<bgcolor>,<attributes>:<keyword>= ...
Specify a different color set. See the Colors section in mc(1) for more information.
-d
Disable mouse support.
-f
Display the compiled-in search paths for Midnight Commander files.
-t
Used only if the code was compiled with S-Lang and terminfo: it makes Midnight Commander use the value of the TERMCAP variable for the terminal information instead of the information on the system wide terminal database
-V
Displays the version of the program.
-x
Forces xterm mode. Used when running on xterm-capable terminals (two screen modes, and able to send mouse escape sequences).

 

COLORS

The default colors may be changed by appending to the MC_COLOR_TABLE environment variable. Foreground and background colors pairs may be specified for example with:

MC_COLOR_TABLE="$MC_COLOR_TABLE:\
normal=lightgray,black:\
selected=black,green"

 

FILES

/usr/share/mc/mc.hlp
