   ls, rm, cd, mv, pushd, popd ... :-) I tried mc (Midnight Commander) years
ago and quickly went back to the command line. But, in my defense, I also
use sed, awk, and grep for a lot of file related things.

   I started computing with paper tapes and punched Hollerith cards. I much
prefer the command line for everything textual.
