New projects:

ncurses C programming: to build a general-purpose ncurses panel, with
color, title, message bar and key navigation, as "less" replacement.
With this "new less", I can rewrite a better Quark, a better RNA, a
better File-Manager, etc. ONE graphic interface for MORE task.
Long term dream: to remove lynx (460k!).

Current muLinux "less" (generic file browser) is 80K, the new one will
be 5-6k with efficient behaviour, concernig key redefinition.

My idea is: a "new less" controlable via script


Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
