NAME
       vifm - vi file manager

SYNOPSIS
       vifm [OPTION]...
       vifm [OPTION]... path
       vifm [OPTION]... path path

DESCRIPTION
       Vifm is an ncurses based file manager with vi like keybindings.  If you
       use vi, vifm gives you complete keyboard control over your files without
       having to learn a new set of commands.

OPTIONS
       vifm starts in the current directory unless it is given a different
       directory on the command line or 'vifminfo' option includes "savedirs"
       (in which case last visited directories are used as defaults).

       -      Read list of files from standard input stream and compose custom
              view out of them (see "Custom views" section).  Current working
              directory is used as a base for relative paths.

       <path> Starts Vifm in the specified path.

       <path> <path>
              Starts Vifm in the specified paths.

       Specifying two directories triggers split view even when vifm was in
       single-view mode on finishing previous session.  To suppress this
       behaviour :only command can be put in the vifmrc file.

       When only one path argument is found on command-line, the left/top pane
       is automatically set as the current view.

       Paths to files are also allowed in case you want vifm to start with some
       archive opened.

       --select <path>
              Open parent directory of the given path and select specified file
              in it.

       -f     Makes vifm instead of opening files write selection to
              $VIFM/vimfiles and quit.

       --choose-files <path>|-
              Sets output file to write selection into on exit instead of
              opening files.  "-" means standard output.  Use empty value to
              disable it.

       --choose-dir <path>|-
              Sets output file to write last visited directory into on exit.
              "-" means standard output.  Use empty value to disable it.

       --delimiter <delimiter>
              Sets separator for list of file paths written out by vifm.  Empty
              value means null character.  Default is new line character.

       --on-choose <command>
              Sets command to be executed on selected files instead of opening
              them.  The command may use any of macros described in "Command
              macros" section below.  The command is executed once for whole
              selection.

       --logging[=<startup log path>]
              Log some operational details $VIFM/log.  If the optional startup
              log path is specified and permissions allow to open it for
              writing, then logging of early initialization (before value of
              $VIFM is determined) is put there.

       --server-list
              List available server names and exit.

       --server-name <name>
              Name of target or this instance (sequential numbers are appended
              on name conflict).

       --remote
              Sends the rest of the command line to another instance of vifm,
              --server-name is treated just like any other argument and should
              precede --remote on the command line.  When there is no server,
              quits silently.  There is no limit on how many arguments can be
              processed.  One can combine --remote with -c <command> or
              +<command> to execute commands in already running instance of
              vifm.  See also "Client-Server" section below.

       -c <command> or +<command>
              Run command-line mode <command> on startup.  Commands in such
              arguments are executed in the order they appear in command line.
              Commands with spaces or special symbols must be enclosed in double
              or single quotes or all special symbols should be escaped (the
              exact syntax strongly depends on shell).  "+" argument is
              equivalent to "$" and thus picks last item of of the view.

       --help, -h
              Show a brief command summary and exit vifm.

       --version, -v
              Show version information and quit.

       --no-configs
              Skip reading vifmrc and vifminfo.


       See "Startup" section below for the explanations on $VIFM.

General keys
       Ctrl-C or Escape
              cancel most operations (see "Cancellation" section below), clear
              all selected files.

       Ctrl-L clear and redraw the screen.

Basic Movement
       The basic vi key bindings are used to move through the files and pop-up
       windows.

       k, gk, or Ctrl-P
              move cursor up one line.

       j, gj or Ctrl-N
              move cursor down one line.

       h      when 'lsview' is off move up one directory (moves to parent
              directory node in tree view), otherwise move left one file.

       l      when 'lsview' is off move into a directory or launches a file,
              otherwise move right one file.

       gg     move to the first line of the file list.

       G      move to the last line in the file list.

       gh     go up one directory.

       gl or Enter
              enter directory or launch a file.

       H      move to the first file in the window.

       M      move to the file in the middle of the window.

       L      move to the last file in the window.

       Ctrl-F or Page Down
              move forward one page.

       Ctrl-B or Page Up
              move back one page.

       Ctrl-D jump back one half page.

       Ctrl-U jump forward one half page.

       n%     move to the file that is n percent from the top of the list (for
              example 25%).

       0 or ^ move cursor to the first column.  See 'lsview' option description.

       $      move cursor to the last column.  See 'lsview' option description.

       Space  switch file lists.

Movement with Count
       Most movement commands also accept a count, 12j would move down 12 files.

       [count]%
              move to percent of the file list.

       [count]j
              move down [count] files.

       [count]k
              move up [count] files.

       [count]G or [count]gg
              move to list position [count].

       [count]h
              go up [count] directories.

Scrolling panes
       zt     redraw pane with file in top of list.

       zz     redraw pane with file in center of list.

       zb     redraw pane with file in bottom of list.

       Ctrl-E scroll pane one line down.

       Ctrl-Y scroll pane one line up.

Pane manipulation
       Second character can be entered with or without Control key.

       Ctrl-W H
              move the pane to the far left.

       Ctrl-W J
              move the pane to the very bottom.

       Ctrl-W K
              move the pane to the very top.

       Ctrl-W L
              move the pane to the far right.


       Ctrl-W h
              switch to the left pane.

       Ctrl-W j
              switch to the pane below.

       Ctrl-W k
              switch to the pane above.

       Ctrl-W l
              switch to the right pane.


       Ctrl-W b
              switch to bottom-right window.

       Ctrl-W t
              switch to top-left window.


       Ctrl-W p
              switch to previous window.

       Ctrl-W w
              switch to other pane.


       Ctrl-W o
              leave only one pane.

       Ctrl-W s
              split window horizontally.

       Ctrl-W v
              split window vertically.


       Ctrl-W x
              exchange panes.

       Ctrl-W z
              quit preview pane or view modes.


       Ctrl-W -
              decrease size of the view by count.

       Ctrl-W +
              increase size of the view by count.

       Ctrl-W <
              decrease size of the view by count.

       Ctrl-W >
              increase size of the view by count.


       Ctrl-W |
              set current view size to count.

       Ctrl-W _
              set current view size to count.

       Ctrl-W =
              make size of two views equal.

       For Ctrl-W +, Ctrl-W -, Ctrl-W <, Ctrl-W >, Ctrl-W | and Ctrl-W _
       commands count can be given before and/or after Ctrl-W.  The resulting
       count is a multiplication of those two.  So "2 Ctrl-W 2 -" decreases
       window size by 4 lines or columns.

       Ctrl-W | and Ctrl-W _ maximise current view by default.

Marks
       Marks are set the same way as they are in vi.

       You can use these characters for marks [a-z][A-Z][0-9].

       m[a-z][A-Z][0-9]
              set a mark for the file at the current cursor position.

       '[a-z][A-Z][0-9]
              navigate to the file set for the mark.


       There are also several special marks that can't be set manually:

         - ' (single quote) - previously visited directory of the view, thus
           hitting '' allows switching between two last locations

         - < - the first file of the last visually selected block

         - > - the last file of the last visually selected block

Searching
       /regular expression pattern
              search for files matching regular expression in forward direction
              and advance cursor to next match.

       /      perform forward search with top item of search pattern history.

       ?regular expression pattern
              search for files matching regular expression in backward direction
              and advance cursor to previous match.

       ?      perform backward search with top item of search pattern history.

       Trailing slash for directories is taken into account, so /\/ searches for
       directories and symbolic links to directories.  At the moment // works
       too, but this can change in the future, so consider escaping the slash if
       not typing pattern by hand.

       Matches are automatically selected if 'hlsearch' is set.  Enabling
       'incsearch' makes search interactive.  'ignorecase' and 'smartcase'
       options affect case sensitivity of search queries.


       [count]n
              go to the next file matching last search pattern.  Takes last
              search direction into account.

       [count]N
              go to the previous file matching last search pattern.  Takes last
              search direction into account.

       If 'hlsearch' option is set, hitting n/N to perform search and go to the
       first matching item resets current selection in normal mode.  It is not
       the case if search was already performed on files in the directory, thus
       selection is not reset after clearing selection with escape key and
       hitting n/N key again.

       Note: vifm uses extended regular expressions for / and ?.


       [count]f[character]
              search forward for file with [character] as first character in
              name.  Search wraps around the end of the list.

       [count]F[character]
              search backward for file with [character] as first character in
              name.  Search wraps around the end of the list.

       [count];
              find the next match of f or F.

       [count],
              find the previous match of f or F.

       Note: f, F, ; and , wrap around list beginning and end when they are used
       alone and they don't wrap when they are used as selectors.

File Filters
       There are three basic file filters:

         - dot files filter (excluding "." and ".." special directories, whose
           appearance is controlled by the 'dotdirs' option);

         - manual filter for file names;

         - automatic filter for file names;

         - local filter for file names (see description of the "=" normal mode
           command).

       Performing operations on manual filter for file names automatically does
       the same on automatic one.  The file name filter is separated mainly for
       convenience purpose and to get more deterministic behaviour.

       The basic vim folding key bindings are used for filtering files.

       Each file list has its own copy of each filter.

       Filtered files are not checked in / search or :commands.

       Files and directories are filtered separately.  For this a slash is
       appended to a directory name before testing whether it matches the
       filter.  Examples:


         " filter directories which names end with '.files'
         :filter /^.*\.files\/$/

         " filter files which names end with '.d'
         :filter /^.*\.d$/

         " filter files and directories which names end with '.o'
         :filter /^.*\.o\/?$/

       za     toggle visibility of dot files.

       zo     show dot files.

       zm     hide dot files.

       zf     add selected files to file name filter.

       zO     show files hidden by file name filter.

       zM     restore all filters.

       zR     remove all filters.

       zr     remove local filter.

       zd     exclude selection or current file from a custom view.  Does
              nothing for regular view.  For tree view excluding directory
              excludes that sub-tree.  For compare views zd hides group of
              adjacent identical files, count can be specified as 1 to exclude
              just single file or selected items instead.  Files excluded this
              way are not counted as filtered out and can't be returned unless
              view is reloaded.

       =regular expression pattern
              filter out files that don't match regular expression.  Whether
              view is updated as regular expression is changed depends on the
              value of the 'incsearch' option.  This kind of filter is
              automatically reset when directory is changed.

Other Normal Mode Keys
       [count]:
              enter command line mode.  [count] generates range.

       q:     open external editor to prompt for command-line command.  See
              "Command line editing" section for details.

       q/     open external editor to prompt for search pattern to be searched
              in forward direction.  See "Command line editing" section for
              details.

       q?     open external editor to prompt for search pattern to be searched
              in backward direction.  See "Command line editing" section for
              details.

       q=     open external editor to prompt for filter pattern.  See "Command
              line editing" section for details.  Unlike other q{x} commands
              this one doesn't work in Visual mode.

       [count]!! and [count]!<selector>
              enter command line mode with entered ! command.  [count] modifies
              range.

       Ctrl-O go backwards through directory history of current view.
              Nonexistent directories are automatically skipped.

       Ctrl-I if 'cpoptions' contains "t" flag, <tab> and <c-i> switch active
              pane just like <space> does, otherwise it goes forward through
              directory history of current view.  Nonexistent directories are
              automatically skipped.

       Ctrl-G create a window showing detailed information about the current
              file.

       Shift-Tab
              enters view mode (works only after activating view pane with :view
              command).

       ga     calculate directory size.  Uses cached directory sizes when
              possible for better performance.  As a special case calculating
              size of ".." entry results in calculation of size of current
              directory.

       gA     like ga, but force update.  Ignores old values of directory sizes.

       If file under cursor is selected, each selected item is processed,
       otherwise only current file is updated.

       gf     find link destination (like l with 'followlinks' off, but also
              finds directories).

       gr     only for MS-Windows
              same as l key, but tries to run program with administrative
              privileges.

       av     go to visual mode into selection amending state preserving current
              selection.

       gv     go to visual mode restoring last selection.

       [reg]gs
              when no register is specified, restore last t selection (similar
              to what gv does for visual mode selection).  If register is
              present, then all files listed in that register and which are
              visible in current view are selected.

       gu<selector>
              make names of selected files lowercase.

       [count]guu and [count]gugu
              make names of [count] files starting from the current one
              lowercase.  Without [count] only current file is affected.

       gU<selector>
              make names of selected files uppercase.

       [count]gUU and [count]gUgU
              make names of [count] files starting from the current one
              uppercase.  Without [count] only current file is affected.

       e      explore file in the current pane.

       i      handle file (even if it's an executable and 'runexec' option is
              set).

       cw     change word is used to rename a file or files.

       cW     change WORD is used to change only name of file (without
              extension).

       cl     change link target.

       co     only for *nix
              change file owner.

       cg     only for *nix
              change file group.

       [count]cp
              change file attributes (permission on *nix and properties on
              Windows).  If [count] is specified, it's treated as numerical
              argument for non-recursive `chmod` command (of the form
              [0-7]{3,4}).

       [count]C
              clone file [count] times.

       [count]dd or d[count]selector
              move selected file or files to trash directory (if 'trash' option
              is set, otherwise delete).  See "Trash directory" section below.

       [count]DD or D[count]selector
              like dd and d<selector>, but omitting trash directory (even when
              'trash' option is set).

       Y, [count]yy or y[count]selector
              yank selected files.

       p      copy yanked files to the current directory or move the files to
              the current directory if they were deleted with dd or :d[elete] or
              if the files were yanked from trash directory.  See "Trash
              directory" section below.

       P      move the last yanked files.  The advantage of using P instead of d
              followed by p is that P moves files only once.  This isn't
              important in case you're moving files in the same file system
              where your home directory is, but using P to move files on some
              other file system (or file systems, in case you want to move files
              from fs1 to fs2 and your home is on fs3) can save your time.

       al     put symbolic links with absolute paths.

       rl     put symbolic links with relative paths.

       t      select or unselect (tag) the current file.

       u      undo last change.

       Ctrl-R redo last change.

       dp     in compare view of "ofboth grouppaths" kind, makes corresponding
              entry of the other pane equal to the current one.  The semantics
              is as follows:
               - nothing done for identical entries
               - if file is missing in current view, its pair gets removed
               - if file is missing or differs in other view, it's replaced
               - file pairs are defined by matching relative paths
              File removal obeys 'trash' option.  When the option is enabled,
              the operation can be undone/redone (although results won't be
              visible automatically).
              Unlike in Vim, this operation is performed on a single line rather
              than a set of adjacent changes.

       do     same as dp, but applies changes in the opposite direction.

       v or V enter visual mode, clears current selection.

       [count]Ctrl-A
              increment first number in file name by [count] (1 by default).

       [count]Ctrl-X
              decrement first number in file name by [count] (1 by default).

       ZQ     same as :quit!.

       ZZ     same as :quit.

       .      repeat last command-line command (not normal mode command) of this
              session (does nothing right after startup or :restart command).
              The command doesn't depend on command-line history and can be used
              with completely disabled history.

       (      go to previous group.  Groups are defined by primary sorting key.
              For name and iname members of each group have same first letter,
              for all other sorting keys vifm uses size, uid, ...

       )      go to next group.  See ( key description above.

       {      similar to ( key, but always considers whether entry is file or
              directory and thus speeds up navigation to closest previous entry
              of the opposite type.

       }      same as {, but in forward direction.

       [c     go to previous mismatched entry in directory comparison view or do
              nothing.

       ]c     go to next mismatched entry in directory comparison view or do
              nothing.

       [d     go to previous directory entry or do nothing.

       ]d     go to next directory entry or do nothing.

       [s     go to previous selected entry or do nothing.

       ]s     go to next selected entry or do nothing.

       [z     go to first sibling of current entry.

       ]z     go to last sibling of current entry.

       zj     go to next directory sibling of current entry or do nothing.

       zk     go to previous directory sibling of current entry or do nothing.

Using Count
       You can use count with commands like yy.

       [count]yy
              yank count files starting from current cursor position downward.

       Or you can use count with motions passed to y, d or D.

       d[count]j
              delete (count + 1) files starting from current cursor position
              upward.

Registers
       vifm supports multiple registers for temporary storing list of yanked or
       deleted files.

       Registers should be specified by hitting double quote key followed by a
       register name.  Count is specified after register name.  By default
       commands use unnamed register, which has double quote as its name.

       Though all commands accept registers, most of commands ignores them (for
       example H or Ctrl-U).  Other commands can fill register or append new
       files to it.

       Presently vifm supports ", _, a-z and A-Z characters as register names.

       As mentioned above " is unnamed register and has special meaning of the
       default register.  Every time when you use named registers (a-z and A-Z)
       unnamed register is updated to contain same list of files as the last
       used register.

       _ is black hole register.  It can be used for writing, but its list is
       always empty.

       Registers with names from a to z and from A to Z are named ones.
       Lowercase registers are cleared before adding new files, while uppercase
       aren't and should be used to append new files to the existing file list
       of appropriate lowercase register (A for a, B for b, ...).

       Registers can be changed on :empty command if they contain files under
       trash directory (see "Trash directory" section below).

       Registers do not contain one file more than once.

       Example:

         "a2yy

       puts names of two files to register a (and to the unnamed register),

         "Ad

       removes one file and append its name to register a (and to the unnamed
       register),

         p or "ap or "Ap

       inserts previously yanked and deleted files into current directory.

Selectors
       y, d, D, !, gu and gU commands accept selectors.  You can combine them
       with any of selectors below to quickly remove or yank several files.

       Most of selectors are like vi motions: j, k, gg, G, H, L, M, %, f, F, ;,
       comma, ', ^, 0 and $.  But there are some additional ones.

       a      all files in current view.

       s      selected files.

       S      all files except selected.

       Examples:

         - dj - delete file under cursor and one below;

         - d2j - delete file under cursor and two below;

         - y6gg - yank all files from cursor position to 6th file in the list.

       When you pass a count to whole command and its selector they are
       multiplied. So:

         - 2d2j - delete file under cursor and four below;

         - 2dj - delete file under cursor and two below;

         - 2y6gg - yank all files from cursor position to 12th file in the list.

Visual Mode
       Visual mode has to generic operating submodes:

         - plain selection as it is in Vim;

         - selection editing submode.

       Both modes select files in range from cursor position at which visual
       mode was entered to current cursor position (let's call it "selection
       region").  Each of two borders can be adjusted by swapping them via "o"
       or "O" keys and updating cursor position with regular cursor motion keys.
       Obviously, once initial cursor position is altered this way, real start
       position becomes unavailable.

       Plain Vim-like visual mode starts with cleared selection, which is not
       restored on rejecting selection ("Escape", "Ctrl-C", "v", "V").  Contrary
       to it, selection editing doesn't clear previously selected files and
       restores them after reject.  Accepting selection by performing an
       operation on selected items (e.g. yanking them via "y") moves cursor to
       the top of current selection region (not to the top most selected file of
       the view).

       In turn, selection editing supports three types of editing (look at
       statusbar to know which one is currently active):

         - append - amend selection by selecting elements in selection region;

         - remove - amend selection by deselecting elements in selection region;

         - invert - amend selection by inverting selection of elements in
           selection region.

       No matter how you activate selection editing it starts in "append".  One
       can switch type of operation (in the order given above) via "Ctrl-G" key.

       Almost all normal mode keys work in visual mode, but instead of accepting
       selectors they operate on selected items.

       Enter  save selection and go back to normal mode not moving cursor.

       av     leave visual mode if in amending mode (restores previous
              selection), otherwise switch to amending selection mode.

       gv     restore previous visual selection.

       v, V, Ctrl-C or Escape
              leave visual mode if not in amending mode, otherwise switch to
              normal visual selection.

       Ctrl-G switch type of amending by round robin scheme: append -> remove ->
              invert.

       :      enter command line mode.  Selection is cleared on leaving the
              mode.

       o      switch active selection bound.

       O      switch active selection bound.

       gu, u  make names of selected files lowercase.

       gU, U  make names of selected files uppercase.

View Mode
       This mode tries to imitate the less program.  List of builtin shortcuts
       can be found below.  Shortcuts can be customized using :qmap, :qnoremap
       and :qunmap command-line commands.

       Shift-Tab, Tab, q, Q, ZZ
              return to normal mode.

       [count]e, [count]Ctrl-E, [count]j, [count]Ctrl-N, [count]Enter
              scroll forward one line (or [count] lines).

       [count]y, [count]Ctrl-Y, [count]k, [count]Ctrl-K, [count]Ctrl-P
              scroll backward one line (or [count] lines).

       [count]f, [count]Ctrl-F, [count]Ctrl-V, [count]Space
              scroll forward one window (or [count] lines).

       [count]b, [count]Ctrl-B, [count]Alt-V
              scroll backward one window (or [count] lines).

       [count]z
              scroll forward one window (and set window to [count]).

       [count]w
              scroll backward one window (and set window to [count]).

       [count]Alt-Space
              scroll forward one window, but don't stop at end-of-file.

       [count]d, [count]Ctrl-D
              scroll forward one half-window (and set half-window to [count]).

       [count]u, [count]Ctrl-U
              scroll backward one half-window (and set half-window to [count]).

       r, Ctrl-R, Ctrl-L
              repaint screen.

       R      reload view preserving scroll position.

       F      toggle automatic forwarding.  Roughly equivalent to periodic file
              reload and scrolling to the bottom.  The behaviour is similar to
              `tail -F` or F key in less.

       [count]/pattern
              search forward for ([count]‐th) matching line.

       [count]?pattern
              search backward for ([count]‐th) matching line.

       [count]n
              repeat previous search (for [count]‐th occurrence).

       [count]N
              repeat previous search in reverse direction (for [count]‐th
              occurrence).

       [count]g, [count]<, [count]Alt-<
              scroll to the first line of the file (or line [count]).

       [count]G, [count]>, [count]Alt->
              scroll to the last line of the file (or line [count]).

       [count]p, [count]%
              scroll to the beginning of the file (or N percent into file).

       v      invoke an editor to edit the current file being viewed.  The
              command for editing is taken from the 'vicmd'/'vixcmd' option
              value and extended with middle line number prepended by a plus
              sign and name of the current file.

       All "Ctrl-W x" keys work the same was as in Normal mode.  Active mode is
       automatically changed on navigating among windows.  When less-like mode
       activated on file preview is left using one by "Ctrl-W x" keys, its state
       is stored until another file is displayed using preview (it's possible to
       leave the mode, hide preview pane, do something else, then get back to
       the file and show preview pane again with previously stored state in it).

Command line Mode
       These keys are available in all submodes of the command line mode:
       command, search, prompt and filtering.

       Down, Up, Left, Right, Home, End and Delete are extended keys and they
       are not available if vifm is compiled with --disable-extended-keys
       option.

       Esc, Ctrl-C
              leave command line mode, cancels input.  Cancelled input is saved
              into appropriate history and can be recalled later.

       Ctrl-M, Enter
              execute command and leave command line mode.

       Ctrl-I, Tab
              complete command or its argument.

       Shift-Tab
              complete in reverse order.

       Ctrl-_ stop completion and return original input.

       Ctrl-B, Left
              move cursor to the left.

       Ctrl-F, Right
              move cursor to the right.

       Ctrl-A, Home
              go to line beginning.

       Ctrl-E, End
              go to line end.

       Alt-B  go to the beginning of previous word.

       Alt-F  go to the end of next word.

       Ctrl-U remove characters from cursor position till the beginning of line.

       Ctrl-K remove characters from cursor position till the end of line.

       Ctrl-H, Backspace
              remove character before the cursor.

       Ctrl-D, Delete
              remove character under the cursor.

       Ctrl-W remove characters from cursor position till the beginning of
              previous word.

       Alt-D  remove characters from cursor position till the beginning of next
              word.

       Ctrl-T swap the order of current and previous character and move cursor
              forward or, if cursor past the end of line, swap the order of two
              last characters in the line.

       Alt-.  insert last part of previous command to current cursor position.
              Each next call will insert last part of older command.

       Ctrl-G edit command-line content in external editor.  See "Command line
              editing" section for details.

       Ctrl-N recall more recent command-line from history.

       Ctrl-P recall older command-line from history.

       Up     recall more recent command-line from history, that begins as the
              current command-line.

       Down   recall older command-line from history, that begins as the current
              command-line.

       Ctrl-] trigger abbreviation expansion.

Pasting special values
       The shortcuts listed below insert specified values into current cursor
       position.  Last key of every shortcut references value that it inserts:
         - c - [c]urrent file
         - d - [d]irectory path
         - e - [e]xtension of a file name
         - r - [r]oot part of a file name
         - t - [t]ail part of directory path

         - a - [a]utomatic filter
         - m - [m]anual filter
         - = - local filter, which is bound to "=" in normal mode

       Values related to filelist in current pane are available through Ctrl-X
       prefix, while values from the other pane have doubled Ctrl-X key as their
       prefix (doubled Ctrl-X is presumably easier to type than uppercase
       letters; it's still easy to remap the keys to correspond to names of
       similar macros).

       Ctrl-X c
              name of the current file of the active pane.

       Ctrl-X d
              path to the current directory of the active pane.

       Ctrl-X e
              extension of the current file of the active pane.

       Ctrl-X r
              name root of current file of the active pane.

       Ctrl-X t
              the last component of path to the current directory of the active
              pane.

       Ctrl-X Ctrl-X c
              name of the current file of the inactive pane.

       Ctrl-X Ctrl-X d
              path to the current directory of the inactive pane.

       Ctrl-X Ctrl-X e
              extension of the current file of the inactive pane.

       Ctrl-X Ctrl-X r
              name root of current file of the inactive pane.

       Ctrl-X Ctrl-X t
              the last component of path to the current directory of the
              inactive pane.


       Ctrl-X a
              value of automatic filter of the active pane.

       Ctrl-X m
              value of manual filter of the active pane.

       Ctrl-X =
              value of local filter of the active pane.


       Ctrl-X /
              last pattern from search history.

Command line editing
       vifm provides a facility to edit several kinds of data, that is usually
       edited in command-line mode, in external editor (using command specified
       by 'vicmd' or 'vixcmd' option).  This has at least two advantages over
       built-in command-line mode:
         - one can use full power of Vim to edit text;
         - finding and reusing history entries becomes possible.

       The facility is supported by four input submodes of the command-line:
         - command;
         - forward search;
         - backward search;
         - file rename (see description of cw and cW normal mode keys).

       Editing command-line using external editor is activated by the Ctrl-G
       shortcut.  It's also possible to do almost the same from Normal and
       Visual modes using q:, q/ and q? commands.

       Temporary file created for the purpose of editing the line has the
       following structure:

         1. First line, which is either empty or contains text already entered
            in command-line.

         2. 2nd and all other lines with history items starting with the most
            recent one.  Altering this lines in any way won't change history
            items stored by vifm.

       After editing application is finished the first line of the file is taken
       as the result of operation, when the application returns zero exit code.
       If the application returns an error (see :cquit command in Vim), all the
       edits made to the file are ignored, but the initial value of the first
       line is saved in appropriate history.

More Mode
       This is the mode that appears when status bar content is so big that it
       doesn't fit on the screen.  One can identify the mode by "-- More --"
       message at the bottom.

       The following keys are handled in this mode:


       Enter, Ctrl-J, j or Down
              scroll one line down.

       Backspace, k or Up
              scroll one line up.


       d      scroll one page (half of a screen) down.

       u      scroll one page (half of a screen) up.


       Space, f or PageDown
              scroll down a screen.

       b or PageUp
              scroll up a screen.


       G      scroll to the bottom.

       g      scroll to the top.


       q, Escape or Ctrl-C
              quit the mode.

       :      switch to command-line mode.

Commands
       Commands are executed with :command_name<Enter>

       Commented out lines should start with the double quote symbol ("), which
       may be preceded by whitespace characters intermixed with colons.  Inline
       comments can be added at the end of the line after double quote symbol,
       only last line of a multi-line command can contain such comment.  Not all
       commands support inline comments as their syntax conflicts with names of
       registers and fields where double quotes are allowed.

       Most of the commands have two forms: complete and the short one.
       Example:

         :noh[lsearch]

       This means the complete command is nohlsearch, and the short one is noh.

       Most of command-line commands completely reset selection in the current
       view.  However, there are several exceptions:

         - ":invert s" most likely leaves some files selected;

         - :if and :else commands doesn't affect selection on successful
           execution.

       '|' can be used to separate commands, so you can give multiple commands
       in one line.  If you want to use '|' in an argument, precede it with '\'.

       These commands see '|' as part of their arguments even when it's escaped:

           :[range]!
           :autocmd
           :cmap
           :cnoremap
           :command
           :dmap
           :dnoremap
           :filetype
           :fileviewer
           :filextype
           :map
           :mmap
           :mnoremap
           :nmap
           :nnoremap
           :noremap
           :normal
           :qmap
           :qnoremap
           :vmap
           :vnoremap
           :wincmd
           :windo
           :winrun

       To be able to use another command after one of these, wrap it with the
       :execute command.  An example:

         if filetype('.') == 'reg' | execute '!!echo regular file' | endif

       :[count]

       :number
              move to the file number.
              :12 would move to the 12th file in the list.
              :0 move to the top of the list.
              :$ move to the bottom of the list.

       :[count]command
              The only builtin :[count]command are :[count]d[elete] and
              :[count]y[ank].

       :d3    would delete three files starting at the current file position
              moving down.

       :3d    would delete one file at the third line in the list.

       :command [args]

       :[range]!program
              execute command via shell.  Accepts macros.

       :[range]!command &

       same as above, but the command is run in the background using vifm's
       means.

       Programs that write to stdout like "ls" create an error message showing
       partial output of the command.

       Note the space before ampersand symbol, if you omit it, command will be
       run in the background using job control of your shell.

       Accepts macros.

                                                :!!

       :[range]!!command
              same as :!, but pauses before returning.

       :!!    repeat the last command.

                                                :alink

       :[range]alink[!?]
              create absolute symbolic links to files in directory of inactive
              view.  With "?"  prompts for destination file names in an editor.
              "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]alink[!] path
              create absolute symbolic links to files in directory specified by
              the path (absolute or relative to directory of inactive view).

       :[range]alink[!] name1 name2...
              create absolute symbolic links of files in directory of other view
              giving each next link a corresponding name from the argument list.

                                                :apropos

       :apropos keyword...
              create a menu of items returned by the apropos command.  Selecting
              an item in the menu opens corresponding man page.  By default the
              command relies on the external "apropos" utility, which can be
              customized by altering value of the 'aproposprg' option.

                                                :autocmd

       :au[tocmd] {event} {pat} {cmd}
              register autocommand for the {event}, which can be:
                - DirEnter - performed on entering a directory
              Event name is case insensitive.

              {pat} is a comma-separated list of modified globs patterns, which
              can contain tilde or environment variables.  All paths use slash
              ('/') as directory separator.  The pattern can start with a '!',
              which negates it.  Patterns that do not contain slashes are
              matched against the last item of the path only (e.g. "dir" in
              "/path/dir").  Literal comma can be entered by doubling it.  Two
              modifications to globs matching are as follows:
                - *  - never matches a slash (i.e., can signify single directory
              level)
                - ** - matches any character (i.e., can match path of arbitrary
              depth)

              {cmd} is a :command or several of them separated with '|'.

              Examples of patterns:
                - conf.d      - matches conf.d directory anywhere
                - *.d         - matches directories ending with ".d" anywhere
                - **.git      - matches something.git, but not .git anywhere
                - **/.git/**  - matches /path/.git/objects, but not /path/.git
                - **/.git/**/ - matches /path/.git/ only (because of trailing
              slash)
                - /etc/*      - matches /etc/conf.d/, /etc/X11, but not
              /etc/X11/fs
                - /etc/**/*.d - matches /etc/conf.d, /etc/X11/conf.d, etc.
                - /etc/**/*   - matches /etc/ itself and any file below it
                - /etc/**/**  - matches /etc/ itself and any file below it

       :au[tocmd] [{event}] [{pat}]
              list those autocommands that match given event-pattern
              combination.
              {event} and {pat} can be omitted to list all autocommands.  To
              list any autocommands for specific pattern one can use *
              placeholder in place of {event}.

       :au[tocmd]! [{event}] [{pat}]
              remove autocommands that match given event-pattern combination.
              Syntax is the same as for listing above.

       :apropos
              repeat last :apropos command.

                                                :bmark

       :bmark tag1 [tag2 [tag3...]]
              bookmark current directory with specified tags.

       :bmark! path tag1 [tag2 [tag3...]]
              same as :bmark, but allows bookmarking specific path instead of
              current directory.  This is for use in vifmrc and for bookmarking
              files.

              Path can contain macros that expand to single path (%c, %C, %d,
              %D) or those that can expand to multiple paths, but contain only
              one (%f, %F, %rx).  The latter is done for convenience on using
              the command interactively.  Complex macros that include spaces
              (e.g. "%c:gs/ /_") should be escaped.

                                                :bmarks

       :bmarks
              display all bookmarks in a menu.

       :bmarks [tag1 [tag2...]]
              display menu of bookmarks that include all of the specified tags.

                                                :bmgo

       :bmgo [tag1 [tag2...]]
              when there are more than one match acts exactly like :bmarks,
              otherwise navigates to single match immediately (and fails if
              there is no match).

                                                :cabbrev

       :ca[bbrev]
              display menu of command-line mode abbreviations.

       :ca[bbrev] lhs-prefix
              display command-line mode abbreviations which left-hand side
              starts with specified prefix.

       :ca[bbrev] lhs rhs
              register new or overwrites existing abbreviation for command-line
              mode.  rhs can contain spaces and any special sequences accepted
              in rhs of mappings (see "Mappings" section below).  Abbreviations
              are expanded non-recursively.

                                                :cnoreabbrev

       :cnorea[bbrev]

              starts with specified prefix.

       :cnorea[bbrev] lhs rhs
              same as :cabbrev, but mappings in rhs are ignored during
              expansion.

                                                :cd

       :cd or :cd ~ or :cd $HOME

       :cd /curr/dir /other/dir
              change directory of the current pane to /curr/dir and directory of
              the other pane to /other/dir.  Relative paths are assumed to be
              relative to directory of current view.  Command won't fail if one
              of directories is invalid.  All forms of the command accept
              macros.

       :cd! /dir
              same as :cd /dir /dir.

                                                :change

       :c[hange]

       :[range]chmod
              display file attributes (permission on *nix and properties on
              Windows) change dialog.

       :[range]chmod[!] arg...
              only for *nix
              change permissions for files.  See `man 1 chmod` for arg format.
              "!" means set permissions recursively.

                                                :chown

       :[range]chown
              only for *nix
              same as co key in normal mode.

       :[range]chown [user][:][group]
              only for *nix
              change owner and/or group of files.  Operates on directories
              recursively.

       :[range]clone[!] path
              clones files to directory specified with the path (absolute or
              relative to current directory).  "!" forces overwrite.  Macros are
              expanded.

       :[range]clone[!] name1 name2...
              clones files in current directory giving each next clone a
              corresponding name from the argument list.  "!" forces overwrite.
              Macros are expanded.

                                                :colorscheme

       :colo[rscheme]?
              print current color scheme name on the status bar.

       :colo[rscheme]
              display a menu with a list of available color schemes.  You can
              choose primary color scheme here.  It is used for view if no
              directory specific colorscheme fits current path.  It's also used
              to set border color (except view titles) and colors in menus and
              dialogs.

       :colo[rscheme] color_scheme_name
              change primary color scheme to color_scheme_name.  In case of
              errors (e.g. some colors are not supported by terminal) either
              nothing is changed or color scheme is reset to builtin colors to
              ensure that TUI is left in a usable state.

       :colo[rscheme] color_scheme_name directory
              associate directory with the color scheme.  The directory argument
              can be either absolute or relative path when :colorscheme command
              is executed from command line, but mandatory should be an absolute
              path when the command is executed in scripts loaded at startup
              (until vifm is completely loaded).

                                                :comclear

       :comc[lear]

              display a menu of user commands.

       :com[mand] beginning
              display user defined commands that start with the beginning.

       :com[mand] name action
              set a new user command.
              Trying to use a reserved command name will result in an error
              message.
              Use :com[mand]! to overwrite a previously set command.
              Unlike vim user commands do not have to start with a capital
              letter.  User commands are run in a shell by default.  To run a
              command in the background you must set it as a background command
              with & at the end of the commands action (:com rm rm %f &).
              Command name cannot contain numbers or special symbols (except '?'
              and '!').

       :com[mand] name /pattern
              set search pattern.

       :com[mand] name =pattern
              set local filter value.

       :com[mand] name filter{:filter args}
              set file name filter (see :filter command description).  For
              example:

                " display only audio files
                :command onlyaudio filter/.+.\(mp3|wav|mp3|flac|ogg|m4a|wma|ape\)$/i
                " display everything except audio files
                :command noaudio filter!/.+.\(mp3|wav|mp3|flac|ogg|m4a|wma|ape\)$/i

       :com[mand] cmd :commands
              set kind of an alias for internal command (like in a shell).
              Passes range given to alias to an aliased command, so running :%cp
              after
                :command cp :copy %a
              equals
                :%copy

                                                :compare

       :compare [byname | bysize | bycontents | listall | listunique | listdups
       | ofboth | ofone | groupids | grouppaths | skipempty]...
              compare files in one or two views according the arguments.  The
              default is "bycontents listall ofboth grouppaths".  See "Compare
              views" section below for details.  Tree structure is incompatible
              with ls-like view, so value of ´lsview' option is ignored.

                                                :copen

       :cope[n]
              opens menu with contents of the last displayed menu with
              navigation to files by default, if any.

                                                :copy

       :[range]co[py][!?][ &]
              copy files to directory of other view.  With "?" prompts for
              destination file names in an editor.  "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]co[py][!] path[ &]
              copy files to directory specified with the path (absolute or
              relative to directory of other view).  "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]co[py][!] name1 name2...[ &]
              copy files to directory of other view giving each next file a
              corresponding name from the argument list.  "!" forces overwrite.

                                                :cquit

       :cq[uit][!]
              same as :quit, but also aborts directory choosing via --choose-dir
              (empties output file) and returns non-zero exit code.

                                                :cunabbrev

       :cuna[bbrev] lhs
              unregister command-line mode abbreviation by its lhs.

       :cuna[bbrev] rhs
              unregister command-line mode abbreviation by its rhs, so that
              abbreviation could be removed even after expansion.

                                                :delbmarks

              of <expr>.

                                                :exit

       :exi[t][!]
              same as :quit.

                                                :file

       :f[ile][ &]
              display menu of programs set for the file type of the current
              file.  " &" forces running associated program in background.

       :f[ile] arg[ &]
              run associated command that begins with the arg skipping opening
              menu.  " &" forces running associated program in background.

                                                :filetype

       :filet[ype] pattern-list [{descr}]def_prog[ &],[{descr}]prog2[ &],...
              associate given program list to each of the patterns.  Associated
              program (command) is used by handlers of l and Enter keys (and
              also in the :file menu).  If you need to insert comma into command
              just double it (",,").  Space followed by an ampersand as two last
              characters of a command means running of the command in the
              background.  Optional description can be given to each command to
              ease understanding of what command will do in the :file menu.
              Vifm will try the rest of the programs for an association when the
              default isn't found.  When program entry doesn't contain any of
              vifm macros, name of current file is appended as if program entry
              ended with %c macro on *nix and %"c on Windows.  On Windows path
              to executables containing spaces can (and should be for correct
              work with such paths) be double quoted.  See "Patterns" section
              below for pattern definition.  See also "Automatic FUSE mounts"
              section below.  Example for zip archives and several actions:

                filetype *.zip,*.jar,*.war,*.ear
                       \ {Mount with fuse-zip}
                       \ FUSE_MOUNT|fuse-zip %SOURCE_FILE %DESTINATION_DIR,
                       \ {View contents}
                       \ zip -sf %c | less,
                       \ {Extract here}
                       \ tar -xf %c,

              Note that on OS X when `open` is used to call an app, vifm is
              unable to check whether that app is actually available.  So if
              automatic skipping of programs that aren't there is desirable,
              `open` should be replaced with an actual command.

       :filet[ype] filename
              list (in menu mode) currently registered patterns that match
              specified file name.  Same as ":filextype filename".

                                                :filextype

       :filex[type] pattern-list [{ description }] def_program,program2,...
              same as :filetype, but this command is ignored if not running in
              X.  In X :filextype is equal to :filetype.  See "Patterns" section
              below for pattern definition.  See also "Automatic FUSE mounts"
              section below.

              For example, consider the following settings (the order might seem
              strange, but it's for the demonstration purpose):

                filetype *.html,*.htm
                        \ {View in lynx}
                        \ lynx
                filextype *.html,*.htm
                        \ {Open with dwb}
                        \ dwb %f %i &,
                filetype *.html,*.htm
                        \ {View in links}
                        \ links
                filextype *.html,*.htm
                        \ {Open with firefox}
                        \ firefox %f &,
                        \ {Open with uzbl}
                        \ uzbl-browser %f %i &,

              If you're using vifm inside a terminal emulator that is running in
              graphical environment (when X is used on *nix; always on Windows),
              vifm attempts to run application in this order:

              1. lynx
              2. dwb
              3. links
              4. firefox
              5. uzbl

              If there is no graphical environment (checked presence of $DISPLAY
              environment variable on *nix; never happens on Windows), the list
              will look like:

              1. lynx
              2. links

              Just as if all :filextype commands were not there.

              The purpose of such differentiation is to allow comfortable use of
              vifm with same settings in desktop environment/through remote
              connection (SSH)/in native console.

              Note that on OS X $DISPLAY isn't defined unless you define it, so
              :filextype should be used only if you set $DISPLAY in some way.

       :filext[ype] filename
              list (in menu mode) currently registered patterns that match
              specified file name.  Same as ":filetype filename".

                                                :fileviewer

       :filev[iewer] pattern-list command1,command2,...
              register specified list of commands as viewers for each of the
              patterns.  Viewer is a command which output is captured and
              displayed in one of the panes of vifm after pressing "e" or
              running :view command.  When the command doesn't contain any of
              vifm macros, name of current file is appended as if command ended
              with %c macro.  Comma escaping and missing commands processing
              rules as for :filetype apply to this command.  See "Patterns"
              section below for pattern definition.

              Example for zip archives:

                fileviewer *.zip,*.jar,*.war,*.ear zip -sf %c, echo "No zip to preview:"

       :filev[iewer] filename
              list (in menu mode) currently registered patterns that match
              specified filename.

                                                :filter

       :filter[!] regular_expression_pattern

       :filter[!] /regular_expression_pattern/[flags]
              will filter all the files out of the directory listing that match
              the regular expression.  Using second variant you can use the bar
              ('|') symbol without escaping.  Empty regular expression
              (specified by //, "" or '') means using of the last search
              pattern.  Use '!' to control state of filter inversion after
              updating filter value (also see 'cpoptions' description).  Filter
              is matched case sensitively on *nix and case insensitively on
              Windows.

              Supported flags:
                - "i" makes filter case insensitive;
                - "I" makes filter case sensitive.

              Flags might be repeated multiple times, later ones win (e.g.
              "iiiI" is equivalent to "I" and "IiIi" is the same as "i").

              " filter all files ending in .o from the filelist.
              :filter /.o$/

              Note: vifm uses extended regular expressions.

       :filter
              reset filter (set it to empty string) and show all files.

       :filter!
              same as :invert.

       :filter?
              show information on local, name and auto filters.

                                                :find

       :[range]fin[d] pattern
              display results of find command in the menu.  Searches among
              selected files if any.  Accepts macros.  By default the command
              relies on the external "find" utility, which can be customized by
              altering value of the 'findprg' option.

       :[range]fin[d] -opt...
              same as :find above, but user defines all find arguments.
              Searches among selected files if any.

       :[range]fin[d] path -opt...
              same as :find above, but user defines all find arguments.  Ignores
              selection and range.

       :[range]fin[d]
              repeat last :find command.

                                                :finish

       :fini[sh]
              stop sourcing a script. Can only be used in a vifm script file.
              This is a quick way to skip the rest of the file.

                                                :grep

       :[range]gr[ep][!] pattern
              will show results of grep command in the menu.  Add "!" to request
              inversion of search (look for lines that do not match pattern).
              Searches among selected files if any and no range given.  Ignores
              binary files by default.  By default the command relies on the
              external "grep" utility, which can be customized by altering value
              of the 'grepprg' option.

       :[range]gr[ep][!] -opt...
              same as :grep above, but user defines all grep arguments, which
              are not escaped.  Searches among selected files if any.

       :[range]gr[ep][!]
              repeats last :grep command.  "!" of this command inverts "!" in
              repeated command.

                                                :help

       :h[elp]
              show the help file.

       :h[elp] argument
              is the same as using ':h argument' in vim.  Use vifm-<something>
              to get help on vifm (tab completion works).  This form of the
              command doesn't work when 'vimhelp' option is off.

                                                :highlight

       :hi[ghlight]
              will show information about all highlight groups in the current
              directory.

       :hi[ghlight] clear
              will reset all highlighting to builtin defaults.

       :hi[ghlight] ( group-name | {pat1,pat2,...} | /regexp/ )
              will show information on given highlight group or file name
              pattern of color scheme used in the active view.

       :hi[ghlight] ( group-name | {pat1,pat2,...} | /regexp/[iI] ) cterm=style
       | ctermfg=color | ctermbg=color
              sets style (cterm), foreground (ctermfg) or/and background
              (ctermbg) parameters of highlight group or file name pattern for
              color scheme used in the active view.

       All style values as well as color names are case insensitive.

       Available style values (some of them can be combined):
        - bold
        - underline
        - reverse or inverse
        - standout
        - none

       Available group-name values:
        - Win - color of all windows (views, dialogs, menus) and default color
       for their content (e.g. regular files in views)
        - Border - color of vertical parts of the border
        - TopLineSel - top line color of the current pane
        - TopLine - top line color of the other pane
        - CmdLine - the command line/status bar color
        - ErrorMsg - color of error messages in the status bar
        - StatusLine - color of the line above the status bar
        - JobLine - color of job line that appears above the status line
        - WildMenu - color of the wild menu items
        - SuggestBox - color of key suggestion box
        - CurrLine - line at cursor position in active view
        - OtherLine - line at cursor position in inactive view
        - Selected - color of selected files
        - Directory - color of directories
        - Link - color of symbolic links in the views
        - BrokenLink - color of broken symbolic links
        - Socket - color of sockets
        - Device - color of block and character devices
        - Executable - color of executable files
        - Fifo - color of fifo pipes
        - CmpMismatch - color of mismatched files in side-by-side comparison by
       path

       Available colors:
        - -1 or default or none - default or transparent
        - black   and lightblack
        - red     and lightred
        - green   and lightgreen
        - yellow  and lightyellow
        - blue    and lightblue
        - magenta and lightmagenta
        - cyan    and lightcyan
        - white   and lightwhite
        - 0-255 - corresponding colors from 256-color palette

       Light versions of colors are regular colors with bold attribute set.  So
       order of arguments of :highlight command is important and it's better to
       put "cterm" in front of others to prevent it from overwriting attributes
       set by "ctermfg" or "ctermbg" arguments.

       For convenience of color scheme authors xterm-like names for 256 color
       palette is also supported.  The mapping is taken from
       http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Xterm256_color_names_for_console_Vim Duplicated
       entries were altered by adding an underscore followed by numerical
       suffix.

       There are two colors (foreground and background) and only one bold
       attribute.  Thus single bold attribute affects both colors when "reverse"
       attribute is used in vifm run inside terminal emulator.  At the same time
       linux native console can handle boldness of foreground and background
       colors independently, but for consistency with terminal emulators this is
       available only implicitly by using light versions of colors.  This
       behaviour might be changed in the future.

       Although vifm supports 256 colors in a sense they are supported by UI
       drawing library, whether you will be able to use all of them highly
       depends on your terminal.  To set up terminal properly, make sure that
       $TERM in the environment you run vifm is set to name of 256-color
       terminal (on *nixes it can also be set via X resources), e.g.
       xterm-256color.  One can find list of available terminal names by listing
       /usr/lib/terminfo/.  Number of colors supported by terminal with current
       settings can be checked via "tput colors" command.

       Here is the hierarchy of highlight groups, which you need to know for
       using transparency:
         JobLine
         SuggestBox
         StatusLine
           WildMenu
         Border
         CmdLine
           ErrorMsg
         Win
           File name specific highlights
             Directory
             Link
             BrokenLink
             Socket
             Device
             Fifo
             Executable
               Selected
                 CurrLine
                 OtherLine
         TopLine
           TopLineSel

       "none" means default terminal color for highlight groups at the first
       level of the hierarchy and transparency for all others.

       Here file name specific highlights mean those configured via globs ({})
       or regular expressions (//).  At most one of them is applied per file
       entry, namely the first that matches file name, hence order of :highlight
       commands might be important in certain cases.

                                                :history

       :his[tory]
              creates a pop-up menu of directories visited.

       :his[tory] x
              x can be:
              d[ir]     or . show directory history.
              c[md]     or : show command line history.
              s[earch]  or / show search history and search forward on l key.
              f[search] or / show search history and search forward on l key.
              b[search] or ? show search history and search backward on l key.
              i[nput]   or @ show prompt history (e.g. on one file renaming).
              fi[lter]  or = show filter history (see description of the "="
              normal mode command).

                                                :if

       :if {expr1}
              starts conditional block.  Commands are executed until next
              matching :elseif, :else or :endif command if {expr1} evaluates to
              non-zero, otherwise they are ignored.  See also help on :else and
              :endif commands.

              Example:

                if $TERM == 'screen.linux'
                    highlight CurrLine ctermfg=lightwhite ctermbg=lightblack
                elseif $TERM == 'tmux'
                    highlight CurrLine cterm=reverse ctermfg=black ctermbg=white
                else
                    highlight CurrLine cterm=bold,reverse ctermfg=black ctermbg=white
                endif

                                                :invert

       :invert [f]
              invert file name filter.

       :invert? [f]
              show current filter state.

       :invert s
              invert selection.

       :invert o
              invert sorting order of the primary sorting key.

       :invert? o
              show sorting order of the primary sorting key.

                                                :jobs

       :jobs  shows menu of current backgrounded processes.

                                                :let

       :let $ENV_VAR = <expr>
              sets environment variable.  Warning: setting environment variable
              to an empty string on Windows removes it.

       :let $ENV_VAR .= <expr>
              append value to environment variable.

       :let &[l:|g:]opt = <expr>
              sets option value.

       :let &[l:|g:]opt .= <expr>
              append value to string option.

       :let &[l:|g:]opt += <expr>
              increasing option value, adding sub-values.

       :let &[l:|g:]opt -= <expr>
              decreasing option value, removing sub-values.

       Where <expr> could be a single-quoted string, double-quoted string, an
       environment variable, function call or a concatanation of any of them in
       any order using the '.' operator.  Any whitespace is ignored.

                                                :locate

       :locate filename
              use "locate" command to create a menu of filenames.  Selecting a
              file from the menu will reload the current file list in vifm to
              show the selected file.  By default the command relies on the
              external "locate" utility (it's assumed that its database is
              already built), which can be customized by altering value of the
              'locateprg' option.

       :locate
              repeats last :locate command.

                                                :ls

       :ls    lists windows of active terminal multiplexer (only when terminal
              multiplexer is used).  This is achieved by issuing proper command
              for active terminal multiplexer, thus the list is not handled by
              vifm.

                                                :lstrash

       :lstrash
              displays a menu with list of files in trash.  Each element of the
              list is original path of a deleted file, thus the list can contain
              duplicates.

                                                :mark

       :[range]ma[rk][?] x [/full/path] [filename]
              Set mark x (a-zA-Z0-9) at /full/path and filename.  By default
              current directory is being used.  If no filename was given and
              /full/path is current directory then last file in [range] is used.
              Using of macros is allowed.  Question mark will stop command from
              overwriting existing marks.

                                                :marks

       :marks create a pop-up menu of marks.

       :marks list ...
              display the contents of the marks that are mentioned in list.

                                                :messages

       :mes[sages]
              shows previously given messages (up to 50).

                                                :mkdir

       :[line]mkdir[!] dir ...
              create directories at specified paths.  The [line] can be used to
              pick node in a tree-view.  "!" means make parent directories as
              needed.  Macros are expanded.

                                                :move

       :[range]m[ove][!?][ &]
              move files to directory of other view.  With "?" prompts for
              destination file names in an editor.  "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]m[ove][!] path[ &]
              move files to directory specified with the path (absolute or
              relative to directory of other view).  "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]m[ove][!] name1 name2...[ &]
              move files to directory of other view giving each next file a
              corresponding name from the argument list.  "!" forces overwrite.

                                                :nohlsearch

       :noh[lsearch]
              clear selection in current pane.

                                                :normal

       :norm[al][!] commands
              execute normal mode commands.  If "!" is used, user defined
              mappings are ignored.  Unfinished last command is aborted as if
              <esc> or <c-c> was typed.  A ":" should be completed as well.
              Commands can't start with a space, so put a count of 1 (one)
              before it.

                                                :only

       :on[ly]
              switch to a one window view.

                                                :popd

       :popd  remove pane directories from stack.

                                                :pushd

       :pushd[!] /curr/dir [/other/dir]
              add pane directories to stack and process arguments like :cd
              command.

       :pushd exchange the top two items of the directory stack.

                                                :put

       :[line]pu[t][!] [reg] [ &]
              puts files from specified register (" by default) into current
              directory.  The [line] can be used to pick node in a tree-view.
              "!" moves files "!" moves files from their original location
              instead of copying them.  During this operation no confirmation
              dialogs will be shown, all checks are performed beforehand.

                                                :pwd

       :pw[d] show the present working directory.

                                                :quit

       :q[uit][!]
              exit vifm (add ! to skip saving changes and checking for active
              backgrounded commands).

                                                :redraw

       :redr[aw]
              redraw the screen immediately.

       :reg[isters]
              display menu with registers content.

       :reg[isters] list ...
              display the contents of the numbered and named registers that are
              mentioned in list (for example "az to display "", "a and "z
              content).

                                                :rename

       :[range]rename[!]
              rename files using vi to edit names. ! means go recursively
              through directories.

       :[range]rename name1 name2...
              rename each of selected files to a corresponding name.

                                                :restart

       :restart
              free a lot of things (histories, commands, etc.), reread vifminfo
              and vifmrc files and run startup commands passed in the argument
              list, thus losing all unsaved changes (e.g. recent history or keys
              mapped in current session).

                                                :restore

       :[range]restore
              restore file from trash directory, doesn't work outside one of
              trash directories.  See "Trash directory" section below.

                                                :rlink

       :[range]rlink[!?]
              create relative symbolic links to files in directory of other
              view.  With "?" prompts for destination file names in an editor.
              "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]rlink[!] path
              create relative symbolic links of files in directory specified
              with the path (absolute or relative to directory of other view).
              "!" forces overwrite.

       :[range]rlink[!] name1 name2...
              create relative symbolic links of files in directory of other view
              giving each next link a corresponding name from the argument list.
              "!" forces overwrite.

                                                :screen

       :screen
              toggle whether to use the terminal multiplexer or not.
              A terminal multiplexer uses pseudo terminals to allow multiple
              windows to be used in the console or in a single xterm.  Starting
              vifm from terminal multiplexer with appropriate support turned on
              will cause vifm to open a new terminal multiplexer window for each
              new file edited or program launched from vifm.
              This requires screen version 3.9.9 or newer for the screen -X
              argument or tmux (1.8 version or newer is recommended).

       :screen!
              enable integration with terminal multiplexers.

       :screen?
              display whether integration with terminal multiplexers is enabled.

       Note: the command is called screen for historical reasons (when tmux
       wasn't yet supported) and might be changed in future releases, or get an
       alias.

                                                :select

       :[range]select
              select files in the given range (current file if no range is
              given).

       :select {pattern}
              select files that match specified pattern.  Possible {pattern}
              forms are described in "Patterns" section below.  Trailing slash
              for directories is taken into account, so `:select! */ | invert s`
              selects only files.

       :select //[iI]
              same as item above, but reuses last search pattern.

       :select !{external command}
              select files from the list supplied by external command.  Files
              are matched by full paths, relative paths are converted to
              absolute ones beforehand.

       :[range]select! [{pattern}]
              same as above, but resets previously selected items before
              proceeding.

                                                :set

       :se[t] display all options that differ from their default value.

       :se[t] all
              display all options.

       :se[t] opt1=val1 opt2='val2' opt3="val3" ...
              sets given options.  For local options both values are set.
              You can use following syntax:
               - for all options - option, option? and option&
               - for boolean options - nooption, invoption and option!
               - for integer options - option=x, option+=x and option-=x
               - for string options - option=x and option+=x
               - for string list options - option=x, option+=x and option-=x
               - for enumeration options - option=x, option+=x and option-=x
               - for set options - option=x, option+=x and option-=x
               - for charset options - option=x, option+=x, option-=x and
              option^=x

              the meaning:
               - option - turn option on (for boolean) or print its value (for
              all others)
               - nooption - turn option off
               - invoption - invert option state
               - option! - invert option state
               - option? - print option value
               - option& - reset option to its default value
               - option=x or option:x - set option to x
               - option+=x - add/append x to option
               - option-=x - remove (or subtract) x from option
               - option^=x - toggle x presence among values of the option

              Option name can be prepended and appended by any number of
              whitespace characters.

                                                :setglobal

       :setg[lobal]
              display all global options that differ from their default value.

       :setg[lobal] all
              display all global options.

       :setg[lobal] opt1=val1 opt2='val2' opt3="val3" ...
              same as :set, but changes/prints only global options or global
              values of local options.  Changes to the latter might be not
              visible until directory is changed.

                                                :setlocal

       :setl[ocal]
              display all local options that differ from their default value.

       :setl[ocal] all
              display all local options.

       :setl[ocal] opt1=val1 opt2='val2' opt3="val3" ...
              same as :set, but changes/prints only local values of local
              options.

                                                :shell

       :sh[ell][!]
              start a shell in current directory.  "!" suppresses spawning
              dedicated window of terminal multiplexer for a shell.  To make
              vifm adaptive to environment it uses $SHELL if it's defined,
              otherwise 'shell' value is used.


                                                :siblnext

       :siblnext[!]

              change directory to next sibling directory of current path using
              value of global sort option of current pane.  "!" enables
              wrapping.

              For example, say, you're at /boot and root listing starts like
              this:

                  bin/
                  boot/
                  dev/
                  ...

              Issuing :siblnext will navigate to /dev.


                                                :siblprev

       :siblprev[!]
              same as :siblnext, but in the opposite direction.

                                                :sort

       :sor[t]
              display dialog with different sorting methods, when one can select
              primary sorting key.  When 'viewcolumns' options is empty and
              'lsview' is off, changing primary sorting key will also affect
              view look (in particular the second column of the view will be
              changed).

                                                :source

       :so[urce] file
              read command-line commands from the file.

                                                :split

       :sp[lit]
              switch to a two window horizontal view.

       :sp[lit]!
              toggle horizontal window splitting.

       :sp[lit] path
              splits the window horizontally to show both file directories.
              Also changes other pane to path (absolute or relative to current
              directory of active pane).

                                                :substitute

       :[range]s[ubstitute]/pattern/string/[flags]
              for each file in range replace a match of pattern with string.

       String can contain \0...\9 to link to capture groups (\0 - all match, \1
       - first group, etc.).

       Pattern is stored in search history.

       Available flags:

         - i - ignore case (the 'ignorecase' and 'smartcase' options are not
           used)

         - I - don't ignore case (the 'ignorecase' and 'smartcase' options are
           not used)

         - g - substitute all matches in each file name (each g toggles this)

       :[range]s[ubstitute]/pattern
              substitute pattern with an empty string.

       :[range]s[ubstitute]//string/[flags]
              use last pattern from search history.

       :[range]s[ubstitute]
              repeat previous substitution command.

                                                :sync

       :sync [relative path]
              change the other pane to the current pane directory or to some
              path relative to the current directory.  Using macros is allowed.

       :sync! change the other pane to the current pane directory and
              synchronize cursor position.  If current pane displays custom list
              of files, position before entering it is used (current one might
              not make any sense).


       :sync! [location | cursorpos | localopts | filters | filelist | tree |
       all]...
              change enumerated properties of the other pane to match
              corresponding properties of the current pane.  Arguments have the
              following meanings:

                - location - current directory of the pane;

                - cursorpos - cursor position (doesn't make sense without
                  "location");

                - localopts - all local options;

                - filters - all filters;

                - filelist - list of files for custom view (implies "location");

                - tree - tree structure for tree view (implies "location");

                - all - all of the above.

                                                :touch

       :[line]touch file...
              create files at specified paths.  Aborts on errors.  Doesn't
              update time of existing files.  The [line] can be used to pick
              node in a tree-view.  Macros are expanded.

                                                :tr

       :[range]tr/pattern/string/
              for each file in range transliterate the characters which appear
              in pattern to the corresponding character in string.  When string
              is shorter than pattern, it's padded with its last character.

                                                :trashes

       :trashes
              lists all valid trash directories in a menu.  Only non-empty and
              writable trash directories are shown.  This is exactly the list of
              directories that are cleared when :empty command is executed.

       :trashes?
              same as :trashes, but also displays size of each trash directory.

                                                :tree

       :tree  turn pane into tree view with current directory as a root.  The
              tree view is implemented on top of a custom view, but is
              automatically kept in sync with file system state and considers
              all the filters.  Thus the structure corresponds to what one would
              see on visiting the directories manually.  Tree structure is
              incompatible with ls-like view, so value of 'lsview' option is
              ignored.

                                                :undolist

       :undol[ist]
              display list of latest changes.  Use "!" to see actual commands.

       :unl[et][!] $ENV_VAR1 $ENV_VAR2 ...
              remove environment variables. Add ! to omit displaying of warnings
              about nonexistent variables.

                                                :unselect

       :[range]unselect

              given).

       :unselect {pattern}
              unselect files that match specified pattern.  Possible {pattern}
              forms are described in "Patterns" section below.  Trailing slash
              for directories is taken into account, so `:unselect */` unselects
              directories.

       :unselect !{external command}
              unselect files from the list supplied by external command.  Files
              are matched by full paths, relative paths are converted to
              absolute ones beforehand.

       :unselect //[iI]
              same as item above, but reuses last search pattern.

       :[count]winc[md] {arg}
              same as running Ctrl-W [count] {arg}.

                                                :windo

       :windo [command...]

              execute command for pane(s), which is determined by type argument:
                - ^ - top-left pane
                - $ - bottom-right pane
                - % - all panes
                - . - current pane

       :cu[nmap] lhs
              remove the mapping of lhs from command line mode.

       :du[nmap] lhs
              remove the mapping of lhs from dialog modes.

       :mu[nmap] lhs
              remove the mapping of lhs from menu mode.

       :nun[map] lhs
              remove the mapping of lhs from normal mode.

       :qun[map] lhs
              remove the mapping of lhs from view mode.

       :vu[nmap] lhs
              remove the mapping of lhs from visual mode.

Ranges
       The ranges implemented include:
         2,3 - from second to third file in the list (including it)
         % - the entire directory.
         . - the current position in the filelist.
         $ - the end of the filelist.
         't - the mark position t.

       Examples:

         :%delete

       would delete all files in the directory.

         :2,4delete

       would delete the files in the list positions 2 through 4.

         :.,$delete

       would delete the files from the current position to the end of the
       filelist.

         :3delete4

       would delete the files in the list positions 3, 4, 5, 6.

       If a backward range is given :4,2delete - an query message is given and
       user can chose what to do next.

       The builtin commands that accept a range are :d[elete] and :y[ank].

Command macros
       The command macros may be used in user commands.

       %a     User arguments.  When user arguments contain macros, they are
              expanded before preforming substitution of %a.

       %c %"c The current file under the cursor.

       %C %"C The current file under the cursor in the other directory.

       %f %"f All of the selected files.

       %F %"F All of the selected files in the other directory list.

       %b %"b Same as %f %F.

       %d %"d Full path to current directory.

       %D %"D Full path to other file list directory.

       %rx %"rx
              Full paths to files in the register {x}.  In case of invalid
              symbol in place of {x}, it's processed with the rest of the line
              and default register is used.

       %m     Show command output in a menu.

       %M     Same as %m, but l (or Enter) key is handled like for :locate and
              :find commands.

       %u     Process command output as list of paths and compose custom view
              out of it.

       %U     Same as %u, but implies less list updates inside vifm, which is
              absence of sorting at the moment.

       %Iu    same as %u, but gives up terminal before running external command.

       %IU    same as %U, but gives up terminal before running external command.

       %S     Show command output in the status bar.

       %q     redirect command output to quick view, which is activated if
              disabled.

       %s     Execute command in split window of active terminal multiplexer
              (ignored if not running inside one).

       %n     Forbid using of terminal multiplexer to run the command.

       %i     Completely ignore command output.


       %pc    Marks end of the main command and beginning of the clear command,
              which is invoked on closing preview of a file.

       The following dimensions and coordinates are in characters:

       %px    x coordinate of top-left corner of preview area.

       %py    y coordinate of top-left corner of preview area.

       %pw    width of preview area.

       %ph    height of preview area.


       Use %% if you need to put a percent sign in your command.

       Note that %m, %M, %s, %S, %i, %u and %U macros are mutually exclusive.
       Only the last one of them on the command will take effect.

       You can use file name modifiers after %c, %C, %f, %F, %b, %d and %D
       macros.  Supported modifiers are:

         - :p           - full path

         - :u           - UNC name of path (e.g. "\\server" in
           "\\server\share"), Windows only.  Expands to current computer name
           for not UNC paths.

         - :~           - relative to the home directory

         - :.           - relative to current directory

         - :h           - head of the file name

         - :t           - tail of the file name

         - :r           - root of the file name (without last extension)

         - :e           - extension of the file name (last one)

         - :s?pat?sub?  - substitute the first occurrence of pat with sub.  You
           can use any character for '?', but it must not occur in pat or sub.

         - :gs?pat?sub? - like :s, but substitutes all occurrences of pat with
           sub.

       See ':h filename-modifiers' in Vim's documentation for the detailed
       description.

       Using %x means expand corresponding macro escaping all characters that
       have special meaning.  And %"x means using of double quotes and escape
       only backslash and double quote characters, which is more useful on
       Windows systems.

       Position and quantity (if there is any) of %m, %M, %S or %s macros in the
       command is unimportant.  All their occurrences are removed from the
       resulting command.

       %c and %f macros are expanded to file names only, when %C and %F are
       expanded to full paths.  %f and %F follow this in %b too.

       :com move mv %f %D
              set the :move command to move all of the files selected in the
              current directory to the other directory.

       The %a macro is replaced with any arguments given to an alias command.
       All arguments are considered optional.
              :com lsl !!ls -l %a - set the lsl command to execute ls -l with or
              without an argument.

       :lsl<Enter>
              will list the directory contents of the current directory.

       :lsl filename<Enter>
              will list only the given filename.

       The macros can also be used in directly executing commands.  ":!mv %f %D"
       would move the current directory selected files to the other directory.

       Appending & to the end of a command causes it to be executed in the
       background.  Typically you want to run two kinds of external commands in
       the background:

         - GUI applications that doesn't fork thus block vifm (:!sxiv %f &);

         - console tools that do not work with terminal (:!mv %f %D &).

       You don't want to run terminal commands, which require terminal input or
       output something in background because they will mess up vifm's TUI.
       Anyway, if you did run such a command, you can use Ctrl-L key to update
       vifm's TUI.

       Rewriting the example command with macros given above with backgrounding:

       %m, %M, %s, %S, %u and %U macros cannot be combined with background mark
       (" &") as it doesn't make much sense.

Command backgrounding
       Copy and move operation can take a lot of time to proceed.  That's why
       vifm supports backgrounding of this two operations.  To run :copy, :move
       or :delete command in the background just add " &" at the end of a
       command.

       For each background operation a new thread is created.  Currently job
       cannot be stopped or paused.

       You can see if command is still running in the :jobs menu.  Backgrounded
       commands have progress instead of process id at the line beginning.

       Background operations cannot be undone.

Cancellation
       Note that cancellation works somewhat different on Windows platform due
       to different mechanism of break signal propagation.  One also might need
       to use Ctrl-Break shortcut instead of Ctrl-C.

       There are two types of operations that can be cancelled:

         - file system operations;

         - mounting with FUSE (but not unmounting as it can cause loss of data);

         - calls of external applications.

       Note that vifm never terminates applications, it sends SIGINT signal and
       lets the application quit normally.

       When one of set of operations is cancelled (e.g. copying of 5th file of
       10 files), further operations are cancelled too.  In this case undo
       history will contain only actually performed operations.

       Cancelled operations are indicated by "(cancelled)" suffix appended to
       information message on statusbar.

       File system operations

       Currently the following commands can be cancelled: :alink, :chmod,
       :chown, :clone, :copy, :delete, :mkdir, :move, :restore, :rlink, :touch.
       File putting (on p/P key) can be cancelled as well.  It's not hard to see
       that these are mainly long-running operations.

       Cancelling commands when they are repeated for undo/redo operations is
       allowed for convenience, but is not recommended as further undo/redo
       operations might get blocked by side-effects of partially cancelled group
       of operations.

       These commands can't be cancelled: :empty, :rename, :substitute, :tr.

       Mounting with FUSE

       It's not considered to be an error, so only notification on the status
       bar is shown.

       External application calls

       Each of this operations can be cancelled: :apropos, :find, :grep,
       :locate.

Patterns
       :highlight, :filetype, :filextype, :fileviewer commands and 'classify'
       option support globs, regular expressions and mime types to match file
       names or their paths.

       There are six possible ways to write a single pattern:

         1. [!]{comma-separated-name-globs}

         2. [!]{{comma-separated-path-globs}}

         3. [!]/name-regular-expression/[iI]

         4. [!]//path-regular-expression//[iI]

         5. [!]<comma-separated-mime-type-globs>

         6. undecorated-pattern

       To combine several patterns (AND them), make sure you're using of the
       first five forms and write patterns one after another, like this:
         <text/plain>{*.vifm}
       Mind that if you make a mistake the whole string will be treated as the
       sixth form.

       :filetype, :filextype and :fileviewer commands accept comma-separated
       list of patterns instead of a single pattern, thus effectively handling
       OR operation on them:
         <text/plain>{*.vifm},<application/pdf>{*.pdf}

       Five first forms can include leading exclamation mark that negates
       pattern matching.

       The last form is implicitly refers to one of others.  :highlight does not
       accept undecorated form, while :filetype, :filextype, :fileviewer,
       :select, :unselect and 'classify' treat it as list of name globs.

       Regular expression patterns are case insensitive by default.

       "Globs" section below provides short overview of globs and some important
       points that one needs to know about them.

       Mime type matching is essentially globs matching applied to mime type of
       a file instead of its name/path.  Note: mime types aren't detected on
       Windows.

Globs
       Globs are always case insensitive as it makes sense in general case.

       *, ?, [ and ] are treated as special symbols in the pattern.  E.g.

         :filetype * less %c

       matches all files.  One can use character classes for escaping, so

         :filetype [*] less %c

       matches only one file name, the one which contains only asterisk symbol.

       * means any number of any characters (possibly an empty substring), with
       one exception: asterisk at the pattern beginning doesn't match dot in the
       first position.  E.g.

         :fileviewer *.zip,*.jar zip -sf %c

       associates using of zip program to preview all files with zip or jar
       extensions as listing of their content.

       ? means any character at this position.  E.g.

         :fileviewer ?.out file %c

       calls file tool for all files which has exactly one character before
       their extension (e.g. a.out, b.out).

       Square brackets designate character class, which means that whole
       character class matches against any of characters listed in it.  For
       example

         :fileviewer *.[ch] highlight -O xterm256 -s dante --syntax c %c

       makes vifm call highlight program to colorize source and header files in
       C language for a 256-color terminal.  Equal command would be

         :fileviewer *.c,*.h highlight -O xterm256 -s dante --syntax c %c


       Inside square brackets ^ or ! can be used for symbol class negotiation
       and the - symbol to set a range. ^ and ! should appear right after the
       opening square bracket.  For example

         :filetype *.[!d]/ inspect_dir

       associates inspect_dir as additional handler for all directories that
       have one character extension unless it's "d" letter.  And

         :filetype [0-9].jpg sxiv

       associates sxiv picture viewer only for JPEG-files that contain single
       digit in their name.

:set options
       Local options
              These are kind of options that are local to a specific view.  So
              you can set ascending sorting order for left pane and descending
              order for right pane.

              In addition to being local to views, each such option also has two
              values:

                - local to current directory (value associated with current
                  location);

                - global to current directory (value associated with the pane).

              The idea is that current directory can be made a temporary
              exception to regular configuration of the view, until directory
              change.  Use :setlocal for that.  :setglobal changes view value
              not affecting settings until directory change.  :set applies
              changes immediately to all values.


       'aproposprg'
              type: string
              default: "apropos %a"
              Specifies format for an external command to be invoked by the
              :apropos command.  The format supports expanding of macros,
              specific for a particular *prg option, and %% sequence for
              inserting percent sign literally.  This option should include the
              %a macro to specify placement of arguments passed to the :apropos
              command.  If the macro is not used, it will be implicitly added
              after a space to the value of this option.

       'autochpos'
              type: boolean
              default: true
              When disabled vifm will set cursor to the first line in the view
              after :cd and :pushd commands instead of saved cursor position.
              Disabling this will also make vifm clear information about cursor
              position in the view history on :cd and :pushd commands (and on
              startup if 'autochpos' is disabled in the vifmrc).  l key in the
              ":history ." and ":trashes" menus is treated like :cd command.
              This option also affects marks so that navigating to a mark
              doesn't restore cursor position.

       'columns' 'co'
              type: integer
              default: terminal width on startup
              Terminal width in characters.

       'caseoptions'
              type: charset
              default: ""
              This option gives additional control over case sensitivity by
              allowing overriding default behaviour to either always be case
              sensitive or always be case insensitive.  Possible values form
              pairs of lower and upper case letters that configure specific
              aspect of behaviour:
                p - always ignore case of paths during completion.
                P - always match case of paths during completion.
                g - always ignore case of characters for f/F/;/,.
                G - always match case of characters for f/F/;/,.

              At most one item of each pair takes affect, if both or more are
              present, only the last one matters.  When none of pair's elements
              are present, the behaviour is default (depends on operating system
              for path completion and on values of ´ignorecase' and 'smartcase'
              options for file navigation).

       'cdpath' 'cd'
              type: string list
              default: value of $CDPATH with commas instead of colons
              Specifies locations to check on changing directory with relative
              path that doesn't start with "./" or "../".  When non-empty,
              current directory is examined after directories listed in the
              option.

              This option doesn't affect completion of :cd command.

              Example:

                set cdpath=~

              This way ":cd bin" will switch to "~/bin" even if directory named
              "bin" exists in current directory, while ":cd ./bin" command will
              ignore value of 'cdpath'.

       'chaselinks'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              When enabled path of view is always resolved to real path (with
              all symbolic links expanded).

       'classify'
              type: string list
              default: ":dir:/"
              Specifies file name prefixes and suffixes depending on file type
              or name.  The format is either of:
                - [{prefix}]:{filetype}:[{suffix}]
                - [{prefix}]::{pattern}::[{suffix}]
              Possible {pattern} forms are described in "Patterns" section
              above.

              Priority rules:
                - file name patterns have priority over type patterns
                - file name patterns are matched in left-to-right order of their
              appearance in this option

              Either {prefix} or {suffix} or both can be omitted (which is the
              default for all unspecified file types), this means empty {prefix}
              and/or {suffix}.  {prefix} and {suffix} should consist of at most
              eight characters.  Elements are separated by commas.  Neither
              prefixes nor suffixes are part of file names, so they don't affect
              commands which operate on file names in any way.  Comma (',')
              character can be inserted by doubling it.  List of file type names
              can be found in the description of filetype() function.

       'confirm' 'cf'
              type: set
              default: delete,permdelete
              Defines which operations require confirmation:
               - delete     - moving files to trash (on d or :delete);
               - permdelete - permanent deletion of files (on D or :delete!
              command or on undo/redo operation).

       'cpoptions' 'cpo'
              type: charset
              default: "fst"
              Contains a sequence of single-character flags.  Each flag enables
              behaviour of older versions of vifm.  Flags:
               - f - when included, running :filter command results in not
              inverted (matching files are filtered out) and :filter! in
              inverted (matching files are left) filter, when omitted, meaning
              of the exclamation mark changes to the opposite;
               - s - when included, yy, dd and DD normal mode commands act on
              selection, otherwise they operate on current file only;
               - t - when included, <tab> (thus <c-i>) behave as <space> and
              switch active pane, otherwise <tab> and <c-i> go forward in the
              view history.

       'cvoptions'
              type: set
              default:
              Specifies whether entering/leaving custom views triggers events
              that normally happen on entering/leaving directories:
               - autocmds    - trigger autocommands on entering/leaving custom
              views;
               - localopts   - reset local options on entering/leaving custom
              views;
               - localfilter - reset local filter on entering/leaving custom
              views.

       'deleteprg'
              type: string
              default: ""
              Specifies program to run on files that are permanently removed.
              When empty, files are removed as usual, otherwise this command is
              invoked on each file by appending its name.  If the command
              doesn't remove files, they will remain on the file system.

       'dirsize'
              type: enumeration
              default: size
              Controls how size of directories is displayed in file views.  The
              following values are possible:
               - size   - size of directory (i.e., size used to store list of
              files)
               - nitems - number of entries in the directory (excluding . and
              ..)

              Size obtained via ga/gA overwrites this setting so seeing count of
              files and occasionally size of directories is possible.

       'dotdirs'
              type: set
              default: nonrootparent
              Controls displaying of dot directories.  The following values are
              possible:
               - rootparent    - show "../" in root directory of file system
               - nonrootparent - show "../" in non-root directories of file
              system

              Note that empty directories always contain "../" entry regardless
              of value of this option.  "../" disappears at the moment at least
              one file is created.

       'dotfiles'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              Whether dot files are shown in the view.  Can be controlled with
              z* bindings.

       'fastrun'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              With this option turned on you can run partially entered commands
              with unambiguous beginning using :! (e.g. :!Te instead of
              :!Terminal or :!Te<tab>).

       'fillchars' 'fcs'
              type: string list
              default: ""
              Sets characters used to fill borders.

                item         default    used for
                vborder:c    ' '        left, middle and right vertical borders

              If value is omitted, its default value is used.  Example:

                set fillchars=vborder:.

       'findprg'
              type: string
              default: "find %s %a -print , -type d \( ! -readable -o !
              -executable \) -prune"
              Specifies format for an external command to be invoked by the
              :find command.  The format supports expanding of macros, specific
              for a particular *prg option, and %% sequence for inserting
              percent sign literally.  This option should include the %s macro
              to specify placement of list of paths to search in and %a or %A
              macro to specify placement of arguments passed to the :find
              command.  If some of the macros are not used, they will be
              implicitly added after a space to the value of the option in the
              following order: %s, %a.  Note that when neither %a nor %A are
              specified, it's %a which is added implicitly.

              The macros can slightly change their meaning depending on :find
              command arguments.  When the first argument points to an existing
              directory, %s is assigned all arguments and %a/%A are left empty.
              Otherwise, %s is assigned a dot (".") meaning current directory or
              list of selected file names, if any.  %a/%A are assigned arguments
              when first argument starts with a dash ("-"), otherwise %a gets an
              escaped version of arguments, prepended by "-name" (on *nix) or
              "-iname" (on Windows) predicate.

              %a and %A macros contain almost the same value, the difference is
              that %a can be escaped and %A is never escaped.  %A is to be used
              mainly on Windows, where shell escaping is a mess and can break
              command execution.

              Optional %u or %U macro could be used (if both specified %U is
              chosen) to force redirection to custom or unsorted custom view
              respectively.

              Starting from Windows Server 2003 a where command is available,
              one can configure vifm to use it in the following way:

                set findprg="where /R %s %A"

              As the syntax of this command is rather limited, one can't use
              :find command with selection of more than one item in this case.
              The command looks for files only completely ignoring directories.

              When using find port on Windows, another option is to setup
              'findprg' like this:

                set findprg="find %s %a"

       'followlinks'
              type: boolean
              default: true
              Follow links on l or Enter.  That is navigate to destination file
              instead of treating the link as if it were target file.  Doesn't
              affects links to directories, which are always entered (use gf key
              for directories).

       'fusehome'
              type: string
              default: "($XDG_DATA_HOME/.local/share | $VIFM)/fuse/"
              Directory to be used as a root dir for FUSE mounts.  Value of the
              option can contain environment variables (in form "$envname"),
              which will be expanded (prepend it with a slash to prevent
              expansion).  The value should expand to an absolute path.

              If you change this option, vifm won't remount anything.  It
              affects future mounts only.  See "Automatic FUSE mounts" section
              below for more information.

       'gdefault' 'gd'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              When on, 'g' flag is on for :substitute by default.

       'grepprg'
              type: string
              default: "grep -n -H -I -r %i %a %s"
              Specifies format for an external command to be invoked by the
              :grep command.  The format supports expanding of macros, specific
              for a particular *prg option, and %% sequence for inserting
              percent sign literally.  This option should include the %i macro
              to specify placement of "-v" string when inversion of results is
              requested, %a or %A macro to specify placement of arguments passed
              to the :grep command and the %s macro to specify placement of list
              of files to search in.  If some of the macros are not used, they
              will be implicitly added after a space to the value of the
              'grepprg' option in the following order: %i, %a, %s.  Note that
              when neither %a nor %A are specified, it's %a which is added
              implicitly.

              Optional %u or %U macro could be used (if both specified %U is
              chosen) to force redirection to custom or unsorted custom view
              respectively.

              See 'findprg' option for description of difference between %a and
              %A.

              Example of setup to use ack (http://beyondgrep.com/) instead of
              grep:

                set grepprg=ack\ -H\ -r\ %i\ %a\ %s

              type: integer
              default: 15
              Maximum number of stored items in all histories.

       'hlsearch' 'hls'
              type: boolean
              default: true
              Highlight all matches of search pattern.

       'iec'  type: boolean
              default: false
              Use KiB, MiB, ... suffixes instead of K, M, ... when printing size
              in human-friendly format.

       'ignorecase' 'ic'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              Ignore case in search patterns (:substitute, / and ? commands) and
              characters after f and F commands.  It doesn't affect file
              filtering.

       'incsearch' 'is'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              When this option is set, search and view update for local filter
              is be performed starting from initial cursor position each time
              search pattern is changed.

       'iooptions'
              type: set
              default:
              Controls details of file operations.  The following values are
              available:
               - fastfilecloning - perform fast file cloning (copy-on-write),
              when available
                                   (available on Linux and btrfs file system).

       'laststatus' 'ls'
              type: boolean
              default: true
              Controls if status bar is visible.

       'lines'
              type: integer
              default: terminal height on startup
              Terminal height in lines.

       'locateprg'
              type: string
              default: "locate %a"
              Specifies format for an external command to be invoked by the
              :locate command.  The format supports expanding of macros,
              specific for a particular *prg option, and %% sequence for
              inserting percent sign literally.  This option should include the
              %a macro to specify placement of arguments passed to the :locate
              command.  If the macro is not used, it will be implicitly added
              after a space to the value of this option.

              Optional %u or %U macro could be used (if both specified %U is
              chosen) to force redirection to custom or unsorted custom view
              respectively.

       'mintimeoutlen'
              type: integer
              default: 150
              The fracture of 'timeoutlen' in milliseconds that is waited
              between subsequent input polls, which affects various asynchronous
              operations (detecting changes made by external applications,
              monitoring background jobs, redrawing UI).  There are no strict
              guarantees, however the higher this value is, the less is CPU load
              in idle mode.

       'lsview'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              scope: local
              When this option is set, directory view will be displayed in
              multiple columns with file names similar to output of `ls -x`
              command.  See "ls-like view" section below for format description.

       'number' 'nu'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              scope: local
              Print line number in front of each file name when 'lsview' option
              is turned off.  Use 'numberwidth' to control width of line number.
              Also see 'relativenumber'.

       'numberwidth' 'nuw'
              type: integer
              default: 4
              scope: local
              Minimal number of characters for line number field.

       'relativenumber' 'rnu'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              scope: local
              Print relative line number in front of each file name when
              'lsview' option is turned off.  Use 'numberwidth' to control width
              of line number.  Various combinations of 'number' and
              'relativenumber' lead to such results:

                                      nonumber               number

                  norelativenumber   | first                |   1 first
                                     | second               |   2 second
                                     | third                |   3 third

                    relativenumber   |   1 first            |   1 first
                                     |   0 second           |2    second
                                     |   1 third            |   1 third


       'rulerformat' 'ruf'
              type: string
              default: "%l/%S "
              Determines the content of the ruler.  Its minimal width is 13
              characters and it's right aligned.  Following macros are
              supported:
               %= - separation point between left and right aligned halves of
              the line
               %l - file number
               %L - total number of files in view (including filtered out ones)
               %- - number of filtered out files
               %S - number of displayed files
               %= - separation point between left and right align items
               %% - percent sign
               %[ - designates beginning of an optional block
               %] - designates end of an optional block

              Percent sign can be followed by optional minimum field width.  Add
              '-' before minimum field width if you want field to be right
              aligned.  Note ambiguity with number of filtered out files, which
              can be resolved with the help of width field ("%0-").

              Example:

                set rulerformat='%2l-%S%[ +%0-%]'

       'runexec'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              Run executable file on Enter or l.

       'scrollbind' 'scb'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              When this option is set, vifm will try to keep difference of
              scrolling positions of two windows constant.

       'scrolloff' 'so'
              type: integer
              default: 0
              Minimal number of screen lines to keep above and below the cursor.
              If you want cursor line to always be in the middle of the view
              (except at the beginning or end of the file list), set this option
              to some large value (e.g. 999).

       'shell' 'sh'
              type: string
              default: $SHELL or "/bin/sh" or "cmd" (on MS-Windows)
              Full path to the shell to use to run external commands.  On *nix a
              shell argument can be supplied.

       'shortmess' 'shm'
              type: charset
              default: "p"
              Contains a sequence of single-character flags.  Each flag enables
              shortening of some message displayed by vifm in the TUI.  Flags:
              T - truncate status-bar messages in the middle if they are too
              long to fit on the command line.  "..." will appear in the middle.
              p - use tilde shortening in view titles.


       'sizefmt'
              type: string list
              default: "units:iec"
              Configures the way size is formatted in human-friendly way.

                  item          value         meaning
                  units:        iec           Use 1024 byte units (K or KiB,
              etc.).
                                              See 'iec' option.
                                si            Use 1000 byte units (KB, etc.).
                  precision:    i > 0         How many fraction digits to
              consider.
                                {not set}     Precision of 1 for integer part <
              10,
                                              0 otherwise (provides old
              behaviour).

              Numbers are rounded from zero.  Trailing zeros are dropped.

              Example:

                set sizefmt=units:iec,precision:2


       'slowfs'
              type: string list
              default: ""
              only for *nix
              A list of mounter fs name beginnings (first column in /etc/mtab or
              /proc/mounts) or paths prefixes for fs/directories that work too
              slow for you.  This option can be used to stop vifm from making
              some requests to particular kinds of file systems that can slow
              down file browsing.  Currently this means don't check if directory
              has changed, skip check if target of symbolic links exists, assume
              that link target located on slow fs to be a directory (allows
              entering directories and navigating to files via gf).  If you set
              the option to "*", it means all the systems are considered slow
              (useful for cygwin, where all the checks might render vifm very
              slow if there are network mounts).

              Example for autofs root /mnt/autofs:

                set slowfs+=/mnt/autofs

       'smartcase' 'scs'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              Overrides the ignorecase option if the search pattern contains at
              least one upper case character.  Only used when ignorecase option
              is enabled.  It doesn't affect file filtering.

       'sort' type: string list
              default: +name on *nix and +iname on Windows
              scope: local
              Sets list of sorting keys (first item is primary key, second is
              secondary key, etc.):
                 [+-]ext     - extension of files and directories
                 [+-]fileext - extension of files only
                 [+-]name    - name (including extension)
                 [+-]iname   - name (including extension, ignores case)
                 [+-]type    - file type (dir/reg/exe/link/char/block/sock/fifo)
                 [+-]dir     - directory grouping (directory < file)
                 [+-]gid     - group id (*nix only)
                 [+-]gname   - group name (*nix only)
                 [+-]mode    - file type derived from its mode (*nix only)
                 [+-]perms   - permissions string (*nix only)
                 [+-]uid     - owner id (*nix only)
                 [+-]uname   - owner name (*nix only)
                 [+-]nlinks  - number of hard links (*nix only)
                 [+-]size    - size
                 [+-]nitems  - number of items in a directory (zero for files)
                 [+-]groups  - groups extracted via regexps from 'sortgroups'
                 [+-]target  - symbolic link target (empty for other file types)
                 [+-]atime   - time accessed (e.g. read, executed)
                 [+-]ctime   - time changed (changes in metadata, e.g. mode)
                 [+-]mtime   - time modified (when file contents is changed)

              Note: look for st_atime, st_ctime and st_mtime in "man 2 stat" for
              more information on time keys.

              '+' means ascending sort for this key, and '-' means descending
              sort.

              "dir" key is somewhat similar in this regard but it's added
              implicitly: when "dir" is not specified, sorting behaves as if it
              was the first key in the list.  That's why if one wants sorting
              algorithm to mix directories and files, "dir" should be appended
              to sorting option, for example like this:

                set sort+=dir

              or

                set sort=-size,dir

              Value of the option is checked to include dir key and default
              sorting key (name on *nix, iname on Windows).  Here is what
              happens if one of them is missing:

                - type key is added at the beginning;

                - default key is added at the end;

              all other keys are left untouched (at most they are moved).

              This option also changes view columns according to primary sorting
              key set, unless 'viewcolumns' option is not empty.

       'sortnumbers'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              scope: local
              Natural sort of (version) numbers within text.

       'sortgroups'
              type: string
              default: ""
              scope: local
              Sets comma-separated list of regular expressions to use for group
              sorting, double comma is literal comma.  Each expression should
              contain at least one group or its value will be considered to be
              always empty.  Only first match of each regular expression is
              considered.  Groups are considered from right to first similar to
              'sort', first group divides list of files into sub-groups, each of
              which is sorted by the second group and so on.

              Example:
                set sortgroups=-(done|todo).*
              this would put files with "-done" in their names above all files
              with "-todo".

       'sortorder'
              type: enumeration
              default: ascending
              Sets sort order for primary key: ascending, descending.

       'statusline' 'stl'
              type: string
              default: ""
              Determines the content of the status line (the line right above
              command-line).  Empty string means use same format like in
              previous versions.  Following macros are supported:

              - %t - file name (considering value of the 'classify' option)

              - %T - symbolic link target (empty for other filetypes)

              - %f - file name relative to current directory (considers
                'classify')

              - %A - file attributes (permissions on *nix or properties on
                Windows) %u - user name or uid (if it cannot be resolved)

              - %g - group name or gid (if it cannot be resolved)

              - %s - file size in human readable format

              - %E - size of selected files in human readable format, same as %s
                when no files are selected, except that it will never show size
                of ../ in visual mode, since it cannot be selected

              - %d - file modification date (uses 'timefmt' option)

              - %D - path of the other pane for single-pane layout

              - %a - amount of free space available at current partition

              - %z - short tips/tricks/hints that chosen randomly after one
                minute period

              - all 'rulerformat' macros

              Percent sign can be followed by optional minimum field width.  Add
              '-' before minimum field width if you want field to be right
              aligned.  Example:

                set statusline="  %t%= %A %10u:%-7g %15s %20d "

              On Windows file properties include the following flags (upper case
              means flag is on):
               A - archive
               H - hidden
               I - content isn't indexed
               R - readonly
               S - system
               C - compressed
               D - directory
               E - encrypted
               P - reparse point (e.g. symbolic link)
               Z - sparse file

       'suggestoptions'
              type: string list
              default:
              Controls when, for what and how suggestions are displayed.  The
              following values are available:
               - normal          - in normal mode;
               - visual          - in visual mode;
               - view            - in view mode;
               - otherpane       - use other pane to display suggestions, when
              available;
               - delay[:num]     - display suggestions after a small delay (to
              do not annoy if you just want to type a fast shortcut consisting
              of multiple keys), num specifies the delay in ms (500 by default),
              'timeoutlen' at most;
               - keys            - include shortcuts (commands and selectors);
               - marks           - include marks;
               - registers[:num] - include registers, at most num files (5 by
              default).

       'syscalls'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              When disabled, vifm will rely on external applications to perform
              file-system operations, otherwise system calls are used instead
              (much faster).  The feature is {EXPERIMENTAL} and {WORK-IN-
              PROGRESS}.  The option will be eventually removed.  Mostly *nix-
              like systems are affected.

       'tabstop' 'ts'
              type: integer
              default: value from curses library
              Number of spaces that a Tab in the file counts for.

       'timefmt'
              type: string
              default: " %m/%d %H:%M"
              Format of time in file list.  See "man 1 date" or "man 3 strftime"
              for details.

       'timeoutlen' 'tm'
              type: integer
              default: 1000
              The time in milliseconds that is waited for a mapped key in case
              of already typed key sequence is ambiguous.

       'title'
              type: boolean
              default: true when title can be restored, false otherwise
              When enabled title of the terminal or terminal multiplexer's
              window is updated according to current location.

       'trash'
              type: boolean
              default: true
              Use trash directory.  See "Trash directory" section below.

       'trashdir'
              type: string
              default: on *nix:
                 "%r/.vifm-Trash-%u,$VIFM/Trash,%r/.vifm-Trash"
                 or if $VIFM/Trash doesn't exist
                 "%r/.vifm-Trash-%u,$XDG_DATA_HOME/vifm/Trash,%r/.vifm-Trash"
                       on Windows:
                 "%r/.vifm-Trash,$XDG_DATA_HOME/vifm/Trash"
              List of trash directory path specifications, separated with
              commas.  Each list item either defines an absolute path to trash
              directory or a path relative to a mount point root when list
              element starts with "%r/".  Value of the option can contain
              environment variables (of form "$envname"), which will be expanded
              (prepend $ with a slash to prevent expansion).  Environment
              variables are expanded when the option is set.

              On *nix, if element ends with "%u", the mark is replaced with real
              user ID and permissions are set so that only that only owner is
              able to use it.
              Note that even this setup is not completely secure when combined
              with "%r/" and it's overall safer to keep files in home directory,
              but that implies cost of copying files between partitions.

              When new file gets cut (deleted) vifm traverses each element of
              the option in the order of their appearance and uses first trash
              directory that it was able to create or that is already writable.

              Default value tries to use trash directory per mount point and
              falls back to ~/.vifm/Trash on failure.

              Will attempt to create the directory if it does not exist.  See
              "Trash directory" section below.

       'tuioptions' 'to'
              type: charset
              default: "ps"
              Each flag configures some aspect of TUI appearance.  The flags
              are:
              p - when included:
                * file list inside a pane gets additional single character
              padding on left and right sides;
                * quick view and view mode get single character padding.
              s - when included, left and right borders (side borders, hence "s"
              character) are visible.

       'undolevels' 'ul'
              type: integer
              default: 100
              Maximum number of changes that can be undone.  Note that here
              single file operation is used as a unit, not operation, i.e.
              deletion of 101 files will exceed default limit.

       'vicmd'
              type: string
              default: "vim"
              The actual command used to start vi.  Ampersand sign at the end
              (regardless whether it's preceded by space or not) means
              backgrounding of command.

       'viewcolumns'
              type: string
              default: ""
              scope: local
              Format string containing list of columns in the view.  When this
              option is empty view columns to show are chosen automatically
              using sorting keys (see 'sort') as a base.  Value of this option
              is ignored if 'lsview' is set.  See "Column view" section below
              for format description.

              An example of setting the options for both panes (note :windo
              command):

                windo set viewcolumns=-{name}..,6{size},11{perms}

       'vixcmd'
              type: string
              default: value of 'vicmd'
              The command used to start vi when in X.  Ampersand sign at the end
              (regardless whether it's preceded by space or not) means
              backgrounding of command.

       'vifminfo'
              type: set
              default: bookmarks,bmarks
              Controls what will be saved in the $VIFM/vifminfo file.

                 bmarks    - named bookmarks
                 bookmarks - marks, except special ones like '< and '>
                 tui       - state of the user interface (sorting, number of
              windows, quick
                             view state, active view)
                 dhistory  - directory history
                 state     - file name and dot filters and terminal multiplexers
              integration
                             state
                 cs        - primary color scheme
                 savedirs  - save last visited directory (requires dhistory)
                 chistory  - command line history
                 shistory  - search history (/ and ? commands)
                 phistory  - prompt history
                 fhistory  - history of local filter (see description of the "="
              normal mode
                             command)
                 dirstack  - directory stack overwrites previous stack, unless
              stack of
                             current session is empty
                 registers - registers content
                 options   - all options that can be set with the :set command
              (obsolete)
                 filetypes - associated programs and viewers (obsolete)
                 commands  - user defined commands (see :command description)
              (obsolete)

       'vimhelp'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              Use vim help format.

       'wildmenu' 'wmnu'
              type: boolean
              default: false
              Controls whether possible matches of completion will be shown
              above the command line.

       'wildstyle'
              type: enumeration
              default: bar
              Picks presentation style of wild menu.  Possible values:
               - bar   - one-line with left-to-right cursor
               - popup - multi-line with top-to-bottom cursor

       'wordchars'
              type: string list
              default: "1-8,14-31,33-255" (that is all non-whitespace
              characters)
              Specifies which characters in command-line mode should be
              considered as part of a word.  Value of the option is comma-
              separated list of ranges.  If both endpoints of a range match,
              single endpoint is enough (e.g. "a" = "a-a").  Both endpoints are
              inclusive.  There are two accepted forms: character representing
              itself or number encoding character according to ASCII table.  In
              case of ambiguous characters (dash, comma, digit) use numeric
              form.  Accepted characters are in the range from 0 to 255.  Any
              Unicode character with code greater than 255 is considered to be
              part of a word.

              The option affects Alt-D, Alt-B and Alt-F, but not Ctrl-W.  This
              is intentionally to allow two use cases:

               - Moving by WORDS and deletion by words.
               - Moving by words and deletion by WORDS.

              To get the latter use the following mapping:

                cnoremap <c-w> <a-b><a-d>

              Also used for abbreviations.

       'wrap' type: boolean
              default: true
              Controls whether to wrap text in quick view.

       'wrapscan' 'ws'
              type: boolean
              default: true
              Searches wrap around end of the list.

Mappings
       Since it's not easy to enter special characters there are several special
       sequences that can be used in place of them.  They are:

       <cr>   Enter key.

       <esc>  Escape key.

       <space>
              Space key.

       <lt>   Less-than character (<).

       <nop>  provides a way to disable a mapping (by mapping it to <nop>).

       <bs>   Backspace key (see key conflict description below).

       <tab> <s-tab>
              Tabulation and Shift+Tabulation keys.

       <home> <end>
              Home/End.

       <left> <right> <up> <down>
              Arrow keys.

       <pageup> <pagedown>
              PageUp/PageDown.

       <del> <delete>
              Delete key.  <del> and <delete> mean different codes, but <delete>
              is more common.

       <c-a>,<c-b>,...,<c-z>,<c-[>,<c->,<c-]>,<c-^>,<c-_>
              Control + some key (see key conflict description below).

       <a-a>,<a-b>,...,<a-z>
              <m-a>,<m-b>,...,<m-z> Alt + some key.

       <a-c-a>,<a-c-b>,...,<a-c-z>
              <m-c-a>,<m-c-b>,...,<m-c-z> only for *nix
              Alt + Ctrl + some key.

       <f0> - <f63>
              Functional keys.

       <c-f1> - <c-f12>
              only for MS-Windows
              functional keys with Control key pressed.

       <a-f1> - <a-f12>
              only for MS-Windows
              functional keys with Alt key pressed.

       <s-f1> - <s-f12>
              only for MS-Windows
              functional keys with Shift key pressed.

       Note that due to the way terminals process their input, several keyboard
       keys might be mapped to single key code, for example:

         - <cr> and <c-m>;

         - <tab> and <c-i>;

         - <c-h> and <bs>;

         - etc.

       Most of the time they are defined consistenly and don't cause surprises,
       but <c-h> and <bs> are treated differently in different environments
       (although they match each other all the time), that's why they correspond
       to different keys in vifm.  As a consequence, if you map <c-h> or <bs> be
       sure to map the other one to the same combination so that the mapping
       will work in all environments.

       vifm removes whitespace characters at the beginning and end of commands.
       That's why you may want to use <space> at the end of rhs in mappings.
       For example:

         cmap <f1> man<space>

       will put "man " in line when you hit the <f1> key in the command line
       mode.

Expression syntax
       Supported expressions is a subset of what VimL provides.

       Expression syntax summary, from least to most significant:

       expr1      expr2 || expr2 ..       logical OR

       expr2      expr3 && expr3 ..       logical AND

       expr3      expr4 == expr4          equal
                  expr4 != expr4          not equal
                  expr4 >  expr4          greater than
                  expr4 >= expr4          greater than or equal
                  expr4 <  expr4          smaller than
                  expr4 <= expr4          smaller than or equal

       expr4      expr5 . expr5 ..        string concatenation

       expr5      - expr5                 unary minus
                  + expr5                 unary plus
                  ! expr5                 logical NOT

       expr6      number                  number constant
                  "string"                string constant, \ is special
                  'string'                string constant, ' is doubled
                  &option                 option value
                  $VAR                    environment variable
                  v:var                   builtin variable
                  function(expr1, ...)    function call

       ".." indicates that the operations in this level can be concatenated.

       expr1
       -----
       expr2 || expr1

       Arguments are converted to numbers before evaluation.

       Result is non-zero if at least one of arguments is non-zero.

       It's right associative and with short-circuiting, so sub-expressions are
       evaluated from left to right until result of whole expression is
       determined (i.e., until first non-zero) or end of the expression.

       expr2
       -----
       expr3 && expr2

       Arguments are converted to numbers before evaluation.

       Result is non-zero only if both arguments are non-zero.

       It's right associative and with short-circuiting, so sub-expressions are
       evaluated from left to right until result of whole expression is
       determined (i.e., until first zero) or end of the expression.

       expr3
       -----
       expr4 {cmp} expr4

       Compare two expr4 expressions, resulting in a 0 if it evaluates to false
       or 1 if it evaluates to true.

       equal                   ==
       not equal               !=
       greater than            >
       greater than or equal   >=
       smaller than            <
       smaller than or equal   <=

       Examples:

         'a' ==  'a'         == 1
         'a' >   'b'         == 1
         'a' ==  'b'         == 0
         '2' >   'b'         == 0
          2  >   'b'         == 1
          2  >   '1b'        == 1
          2  >   '9b'        == 0
         -1  == -'1'         == 1
          0  ==  '--1'       == 1

       expr4
       -----
       expr5 . expr5 ..     string concatenation

       Examples:

         'a' . 'b'           == 'ab'
         'aaa' . '' . 'c'    == 'aaac'

       expr5
       -----

       - expr5              unary minus
       + expr5              unary plus
       ! expr5              logical NOT

       For '-' the sign of the number is changed.
       For '+' the number is unchanged.
       For '!' non-zero becomes zero, zero becomes one.

       A String will be converted to a Number first.

       These operations can be repeated and mixed.  Examples:

          --9                == 9
         ---9                == -9
          -+9                == 9
          !-9                == 0
          !''                == 1
         !'x'                == 0
          !!9                == 1

       expr6
       -----

       number               number constant
       -----

       Decimal number.  Examples:

         0                   == 0
         0000                == 0
         01                  == 1
         123                 == 123
         10000               == 10000

       string
       ------
       "string"             string constant

       Note that double quotes are used.

       A string constant accepts these special characters:
         \b      backspace <bs>
         \e      escape <esc>
         \n      newline
         \r      return <cr>
         \t      tab <tab>
         \\      backslash
         \"      double quote

       Examples:

         "\"Hello,\tWorld!\""
         "Hi,\nthere!"

       literal-string
       --------------
       'string'             string constant

       Note that single quotes are used.

       This string is taken as it is.  No backslashes are removed or have a
       special meaning.  The only exception is that two quotes stand for one
       quote.

       Examples:

         'All\slashes\are\saved.'
         'This string contains doubled single quotes ''here'''

       option
       ------
       &option               option value (local one is preferred, if exists)
       &g:option             global option value &l:option             local
       option value

       Examples:

         echo 'Terminal size: '.&columns.'x'.&lines
         if &columns > 100

       Any valid option name can be used here (note that "all" in ":set all" is
       a pseudo option).  See ":set options" section above.

       environment variable
       --------------------
       $VAR                  environment variable

       The String value of any environment variable.  When it is not defined,
       the result is an empty string.

       Examples:

         'This is my $PATH env: ' . $PATH
         'vifmrc at ' . $MYVIFMRC . ' is used.'

       builtin variable
       --------------------
       v:var                 builtin variable

       Information exposed by vifm for use in scripting.  Only v:servername at
       the moment.

       function call
       -------------
       function(expr1, ...)  function call

       See "Functions" section below.

       Examples:

         "'" . filetype('.') . "'"
         filetype('.') == 'reg'

Functions
       USAGE               RESULT        DESCRIPTION

       {loc}.
       system({command})   String        Executes shell command and returns its
       output.

       chooseopt({opt})

       Retrieves values of options related to file choosing.  {opt} can be one
       of:
           files      returns argument of --choose-files or empty string
           dir        returns argument of --choose-dir or empty string
           cmd        returns argument of --on-choose or empty string
           delimiter  returns argument of --delimiter or the default one (\n)

       executable({expr})

       If {expr} is absolute or relative path, checks whether path destination
       exists and refers to an executable, otherwise checks whether command
       named {expr} is present in directories listed in $PATH.  Checks for
       various executable extensions on Windows.  Returns boolean value
       describing result of the check.

       Example:

         " use custom default viewer script if it's available and installed
         " in predefined system directory, otherwise try to find it elsewhere
         if executable('/usr/local/bin/defviewer')
             fileview * /usr/local/bin/defviewer %c
         else
             if executable('defviewer')
                 fileview * defviewer %c
             endif
         endif

       expand({expr})

       Expands environment variables and macros in {expr} just like it's done
       for command-line commands.  Returns a string.  See "Command macros"
       section above.

       Examples:

         " percent sign
         :echo expand('%%')
         " the last part of directory name of the other pane
         :echo expand('%D:t')
         " $PATH environment variable (same as `:echo $PATH`)
         :echo expand('$PATH')

       filetype({fnum})

       The result is a string, which represents file type and is one of the
       list:
           exe    executables
           reg    regular files
           link   symbolic links
           dir    directories
           char   character devices
           block  block devices
           fifo   pipes
           sock   *nix domain sockets
           ?      unknown file type (should never appear)

       Parameter {fnum} can have following values:
           - '.' to get type of file under the cursor in the active pane

       getpanetype()

       Retrieves string describing type of current pane.  Possible return
       values:
           regular      regular file listing of some directory
           custom       custom file list (%u)
           very-custom  very custom file list (%U)
           tree         tree view

       has({property})

       Allows examining internal parameters from scripts to e.g. figure out
       environment in which application is running.  Returns 1 if property is
       true/present, otherwise 0 is returned.  Currently the following
       properties are supported (anything else will yield 0):
           unix  runs in *nix-like environment (including Cygwin)
           win   runs on Windows

       Usage example:

         " skip user/group on Windows
         if !has('win')
             let $RIGHTS = '%10u:%-7g '
         endif

         execute 'set' 'statusline="  %t%= %A '.$RIGHTS.'%15E %20d  "'

       layoutis({type})

       Checks whether current interface layout is {type} or not, where {type}
       can be:
           only    single-pane mode
           split   double-pane mode (either vertical or horizon split)
           vsplit  vertical split (left and right panes)
           hsplit  horizontal split (top and bottom panes)

       Usage example:

         " automatically split vertically before enabling preview
         :nnoremap w :if layoutis('only') | vsplit | endif | view!<cr>

       paneisat({loc})

       Checks whether position of active pane in current layout matches one of
       the following locations:
           top     pane reaches top border
           bottom  pane reaches bottom border
           left    pane reaches left border
           right   pane reaches right border

       system({command})

       Runs the command in shell and returns its output (joined standard output
       and standard error streams).  All trailing newline characters are
       stripped to allow easy appending to command output.  Ctrl-C should
       interrupt the command.

       Usage example:

         " command to enter .git/ directory of git-repository (when ran inside one)
         command! cdgit :execute 'cd' system('git rev-parse --git-dir')

Menus and dialogs
       When navigating to some path from a menu there is a difference in end
       location depending on whether path has trailing slash or not.  Files
       normally don't have trailing slashes so "file/" won't work and one can
       only navigate to a file anyway.  On the other hand with directories there
       are two options: navigate to a directory or inside of it.  To allow both
       use cases, the first one is used on paths like "dir" and the second one
       for "dir/".

       Commands

       :range navigate to a menu line.

       :exi[t][!] :q[uit][!] :x[it][!]
              leave menu mode.

       :noh[lsearch]
              reset search match highlighting.

       :w[rite] {dest}
              write all menu lines into file specified by {dest}.

       General

       j, Ctrl-N - move down.
       k, Ctrl-P - move up.
       Enter, l - select and exit the menu.
       Ctrl-L - redraw the menu.

       Escape, Ctrl-C, ZZ, ZQ, q - quit.

       In all menus

       The following set of keys has the same meaning as in normal mode.

       Ctrl-B, Ctrl-F
       Ctrl-D, Ctrl-U
       Ctrl-E, Ctrl-Y
       /, ?
       n, N
       [count]G, [count]gg
       H, M, L
       zb, zt, zz

       zh - scroll menu items [count] characters to the right.
       zl - scroll menu items [count] characters to the left.
       zH - scroll menu items half of screen width characters to the right.
       zL - scroll menu items half of screen width characters to the left.

       : - enter command line mode for menus (currently only :exi[t], :q[uit],
       :x[it] and :{range} are supported).

       b - interpret content of the menu as list of paths and use it to create
       custom view in place of previously active pane.  See "Custom views"
       section below.
       B - same as above, but creates unsorted view.

       v - load menu content into quickfix list of the editor (Vim compatible by
       assumption) or if list doesn't have separators after file names (colons)
       open each line as a file name.


       Below is description of additional commands and reaction on selection in
       some menus and dialogs.

       Apropos menu

       Selecting name of a color scheme applies it the same way as if
       ":colorscheme <name>" was executed on the command-line.

       Commands menu

       Selecting command executes it with empty arguments (%a).

       dd on a command to remove.

       Marks menu

       Selecting mark navigates to it.

       dd on a mark to remove it.

       Bookmarks menu

       Selecting a bookmark navigates to it.

       Type dd on a bookmark to remove it.

       gf and e also work to make it more convenient to bookmark files.

       Directory history and Trashes menus

       Selecting directory name will change directory of the current view as if
       :cd command was used.

       Directory stack menu

       Selecting directory name will rotate stack to put selected directory pair
       at the top of the stack.

       Filetype menu

       Commands from vifmrc or typed in command-line are displayed above empty
       line.  All commands below empty line are from .desktop files.

       command-line mode.

       Grep, find, locate, bookmarks and user menu with navigation (%M macro)

       gf - navigate previously active view to currently selected item.  Leaves
       menu mode except for grep menu.  Pressing Enter key has the same effect.

       e - open selected path in the editor, stays in menu mode.

       c - leave menu preserving file selection and insert file name after :! in
       command-line mode.

       User menu without navigation (%m macro)

       c leaves menu preserving file selection and inserts whole line after :!
       in command-line mode.

       Grep menu

       Selecting file (via Enter or l key) opens it in editor set by 'vicmd' at
       given line number.  Menu won't be closed automatically to allow viewing
       more than one result.

       See above for "gf" and "e" keys description.

       Command-line history menu

       Selecting an item executes it as command-line command, search query or
       local filter.

       c leaves menu preserving file selection and inserts line into command-
       line of appropriate kind.

       Volumes menu

       Selecting a drive navigates previously active pane to the root of that

       q - close dialog

       Item states:

       - * - checked flag.

       - X - means that it has different value for files in selection.

       - d (*nix only) - (only for execute flags) means u-x+X, g-x+X or o-x+X
         argument for the chmod program.  If you're not on OS X and want to
         remove execute permission bit from all files, but preserve it for
         directories, set all execute flags to 'd' and check 'Set Recursively'
         flag.

       Jobs menu

       dd requests cancellation of job under cursor.  The job won't be removed
       from the list, but marked as being cancelled (if cancellation was
       successfully requested).  A message will pop up if the job has already
       stopped.  Note that on Windows cancelling external programs like this
       might not work, because their parent shell doesn't have any windows.

       e key displays errors of selected job if any were collected.  They are
       displayed in a new menu, but you can get back to jobs menu by pressing h.


Custom views
       Definition

       Normally file views contain list of files from a single directory, but
       sometimes it's useful to populate them with list of files that do not
       belong to the same directory, which is what custom views are for.

       Presentation

       Custom views are still related to directory they were in before custom
       list was loaded.  Path to that directory (original directory) can be seen
       in the title of a custom view.

       Files in same directory have to be named differently, this doesn't hold
       for custom views thus seeing just file names might be rather confusing.
       In order to give an idea where files come from and when possible,
       relative paths to original directory of the view is displayed, otherwise
       full path is used instead.

       Custom views normally don't contain any inexistent files.

       Navigation

       Custom views have some differences related to navigation in regular
       views.

       gf - acts similar to gf on symbolic links and navigates to the file at
       its real
            location.

       h - go to closes parent node in tree view, otherwise return to the
       original directory.

       gh - return to the original directory.

       Opening ".." entry also causes return to the original directory.

       History

       Custom list exists only while it's visible, once left one can't return to
       it, so there is no appearances of it in any history.

       Filters

       Only local filter affects content of the view.  This is intentional,
       presumably if one loads list, precisely that list should be displayed
       (except for inexistent paths, which are ignored).

       Search

       Although directory names are visible in listing, they are not searchable.
       Only file names are taken into account (might be changed in future,
       searching whole lines seems quite reasonable).

       Sorting

       Contrary to search sorting by name works on whole visible part of file
       path.

       Highlight

       Whole file name is highlighted as one entity, even if there are directory
       elements.

       Updates

       Reloads can occur, though they are not automatic due to files being
       scattered among different places.  On a reload, inexistent files are
       removed and meta-data of all other files is updated.

       Once custom view forgets about the file, it won't add it back even if
       it's created again.  So not seeing file previously affected by an
       operation, which was undone is normal.

       Operations

       All operations that add files are forbidden for custom views.  For
       example, moving/copying/putting files into a custom view doesn't work,
       because it doesn't make much sense.

       On the other hand, operations that use files of a custom view as a source
       (e.g. yanking, copying, moving file from custom view, deletion) and
       operations that modify names are all allowed.

Compare views
       Kinds

       :compare can produce four different results depending on arguments:
        - single compare view (ofone and either listall or listdups);
        - single custom view (ofone and listunique);
        - two compare views (ofboth and either listall or listdups);
        - two custom views (ofboth and listunique).

       The first two display files of one file system tree.  Here duplicates are
       files that have at least one copy in the same tree.  The other two kinds
       of operation compare two trees, in which duplicates are files that are
       found in both trees.

       Lists of unique files are presented in custom views because there is no
       file grouping to preserve as all file ids are guaranteed to be distinct.

       Creation

       Arguments passed to :compare form four categories each with its own
       prefix and is responsible for particular property of operation.

       Which files to compare:
        - ofboth - compares files of two panes against each other;
        - ofone  - compares files of the same directory.

       How files are compared:
        - byname     - by their name only;
        - bysize     - only by their size;
        - bycontents - by combination of size and hash of file contents.

       Which files to display:
        - listall    - all files;
        - listunique - unique files only;
        - listdups   - only duplicated files.

       How results are grouped (has no effect if "ofone" specified):
        - groupids   - files considered identical are always adjacent in output;
        - grouppaths - file system ordering is preferred (this also enables
       displaying identically named files as mismatches).

       Which files to omit:
        - skipempty - ignore empty files.

       Each argument can appear multiple times, the rightmost one of the group
       is considered.  Arguments alter default behaviour instead of substituting
       it.

       Examples

       The defaults corresponds to probably the most common use case of
       comparing files in two trees with grouping by paths, so the following are
       equivalent:

         :compare
         :compare bycontents grouppaths
         :compare bycontents listall ofboth grouppaths

       Another use case is to find duplicates in the current sub-tree:

         :compare listdups ofone

       The following command lists files that are unique to each pane:

         :compare listunique

       Look

       The view can't switch to ls-like view as it's unable to display diff-like
       data.

       Comparison views have second column displaying id of the file, files with
       same id are considered to be equal.  The view columns configuration is
       predefined.

       Behaviour

       When two views are being compared against each other the following
       changes to the regular behaviour apply:
        - views are scrolled synchronously (as if 'scrollbind' was set);
        - views' cursors are synchronized;
        - local filtering is disabled (its results wouldn't be meaningful);
        - zd excludes groups of adjacent identical files, 1zd gives usual
       behaviour;
        - sorting is permanently disabled (ordering is fixed);
        - removed files hide their counter pairs;
        - exiting one of the views terminates the other immediately;
        - renaming files isn't blocked, but isn't taken into account and might
       require regeneration of comparison;
        - entries which indicate absence of equivalent file have empty names and
       can be matched as such;
        - when unique files of both views are listed custom views can be empty,
       this absence of unique files is stated clearly.

       One compare view has similar properties (those that are applicable for
       single pane).

       Files are gathered in this way:
        - recursively starting at current location of the view;
        - dot files are excluded if view hides them at the moment of comparison;
        - directories are not taken into account;
        - symbolic links to directories are ignored.

Startup
       On startup vifm determines several variables that are used during the
       session.  They are determined in the order they appear below.

       On *nix systems $HOME is normally present and used as is.  On Windows
       systems vifm tries to find correct home directory in the following order:
        - $HOME variable;
        - $USERPROFILE variable (on Windows only);
        - a combination of $HOMEDRIVE and $HOMEPATH variables (on Windows only).

       vifm tries to find correct configuration directory by checking the
       following places:
        - $VIFM variable;
        - parent directory of the executable file (on Windows only);
        - $HOME/.vifm directory;
        - $APPDATA/Vifm directory (on Windows only);
        - $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/vifm directory;
        - $HOME/.config/vifm directory.

       vifm tries to find correct configuration file by checking the following
       places:
        - $MYVIFMRC variable;
        - vifmrc in parent directory of the executable file (on Windows only);
        - $VIFM/vifmrc file.

Configure
       See "Startup" section above for the explanations on $VIFM and $MYVIFMRC.

       The vifmrc file contains commands that will be executed on vifm startup.
       There are two such files: global and local.  Global one is at
       {prefix}/etc/vifm/vifmrc, see $MYVIFMRC variable description for the
       search algorithm used to find local vifmrc.  Global vifmrc is loaded
       before the local one, so that the later one can redefine anything
       configured globally.

       Use vifmrc to set settings, mappings, filetypes etc.  To use multi line
       commands precede each next line with a slash (whitespace before slash is
       ignored, but all spaces at the end of the lines are saved).  For example:

         set
             \smartcase

       equals "setsmartcase".  When

         set<space here>
             \ smartcase

       equals "set  smartcase".

       The $VIFM/vifminfo file contains session settings.  You may edit it by
       hand to change the settings, but it's not recommended to do that, edit
       vifmrc instead.  You can control what settings will be saved in vifminfo
       by setting 'vifminfo' option.  Vifm always writes this file on exit
       unless 'vifminfo' option is empty.  Marks, bookmarks, commands,
       histories, filetypes, fileviewers and registers in the file are merged
       with vifm configuration (which has bigger priority).

       Generally, runtime configuration has bigger priority during merging, but
       there are some exceptions:

         - directory stack stored in the file is not overwritten unless
           something is changed in vifm session that performs merge;

         - each mark or bookmark is marked with a timestamp, so that newer value
           is not overwritten by older one, thus no matter from where it comes,
           the newer one wins.

       The $VIFM/scripts directory can contain shell scripts.  vifm modifies its
       PATH environment variable to let user run those scripts without
       specifying full path.  All subdirectories of the $VIFM/scripts will be
       added to PATH too.  Script in a subdirectory overlaps script with the
       same name in all its parent directories.

       The $VIFM/colors/ and {prefix}/etc/vifm/colors/ directories contain color
       schemes.  Available color schemes are searched in that order, so on name
       conflict the one in $VIFM/colors/ wins.

       Each color scheme should have ".vifm" extension.  This wasn't the case
       before and for this reason the following rules apply during lookup:

         - if there is no file with .vifm extension, all regular files are
           listed;

         - otherwise only files with .vifm extension are listed (with the
           extension being truncated).

Automatic FUSE mounts
       vifm has a builtin support of automated FUSE file system mounts.  It is
       implemented using file associations mechanism.  To enable automated
       mounts, one needs to use a specially formatted program line in filetype
       or filextype commands.  Currently two formats are supported:

       1) FUSE_MOUNT This format should be used in case when all information
       needed for mounting all files of a particular type is the same.  E.g.
       mounting of tar files don't require any file specific options.

       Format line:
         FUSE_MOUNT|mounter %SOURCE_FILE %DESTINATION_DIR [%FOREGROUND]

       Example filetype command:

         :filetype FUSE_MOUNT|fuse-zip %SOURCE_FILE %DESTINATION_DIR

       2) FUSE_MOUNT2 This format allows one to use specially formatted files to
       perform mounting and is useful for mounting remotes, for example remote
       file systems over ftp or ssh.

       Format line:
         FUSE_MOUNT2|mounter %PARAM %DESTINATION_DIR [%FOREGROUND]

       Example filetype command:

         :filetype FUSE_MOUNT2|sshfs %PARAM %DESTINATION_DIR

       Example file content:

         root@127.0.0.1:/

       All % macros are expanded by vifm at runtime and have the following
       meaning:
         - %SOURCE_FILE is replaced by full path to selected file;
         - %DESTINATION_DIR is replaced by full path to mount directory, which
       is created by vifm basing on the value of 'fusehome' option;
         - %PARAM value is filled from the first line of file (whole line),
       though in the future it can be changed to whole file content;
         - %FOREGROUND means that you want to run mount command as a regular
       command (required to be able to provide input for communication with
       mounter in interactive way).

       %FOREGROUND is an optional macro.  Other macros are not mandatory, but
       mount commands likely won't work without them.

       %CLEAR is obsolete name of %FOREGROUND, which is still supported, but
       might be removed in future.  Its use is discouraged.

       The mounted FUSE file systems will be automatically unmounted in two
       cases:

         - when vifm quits (with ZZ, :q, etc. or when killed by signal);

         - when you explicitly leave mount point going up to its parent
           directory (with h, Enter on "../" or ":cd ..") and other pane is not
           in the same directory or its child directories.

View look
       vifm supports displaying of file list view in two different ways:

         - in a table mode, when multiple columns can be set using 'viewcolumns'
           option (see "Column view" section below for details);

         - in a multicolumn list manner which looks almost like `ls -x` command
           output (see "ls-like view" section below for details).

       The look is local for each view and can be chosen by changing value of
       the 'lsview' boolean option.

       Depending on view look some of keys change their meaning to allow more
       natural cursor moving.  This concerns mainly h, j, k, l and other similar
       navigation keys.

       Also some of options can be ignored if they don't affect view displaying
       in selected look.  For example value of 'viewcolumns' when 'lsview' is
       set.

ls-like view
       When this view look is enabled by setting 'lsview' option on, vifm will
       display files in multiple columns.  Number of columns depends on the
       length of the longest file name present in current directory of the view.
       Whole file list is automatically reflowed on directory change, terminal
       or view resize.

       View looks close to output of `ls -x` command, so files are listed left
       to right in rows.

       In this mode file manipulation commands (e.g. d) don't work line-wise
       like they do in Vim, since such operations would be uncommon for file
       manipulating tasks.  Thus, for example, dd will remove only current file.

       Note that tree-view and compare view inhibit ls-like view.

Column view
       View columns are described by a comma-separated list of column
       descriptions, each of which has the following format
           [ '-' ] [ fw ( [ '.' tw ] | '%' ) ] '{' type '}' '.'{0,3}
       where fw stands for full width and tw stands for text width.

       So it basically consists of four parts:
        1. Optional alignment specifier
        2. Optional width specifier
        3. Mandatory column name
        4. Optional cropping specifier

       Alignment specifier

       It's an optional minus or asterisk sign as the first symbol of the
       string.

       Specifies type of text alignment within a column.  Three types are
       supported:

       - left align

           set viewcolumns=-{name}

       - right align (default)

           set viewcolumns={name}

       - dynamic align

         It's like left alignment, but when the text is bigger than the column,
         the alignment is made at the right (so the part of the field is always
         visible).

           set viewcolumns=*{name}

       Width specifier

       It's a number followed by a percent sign, two numbers (second one should
       be less than or equal to the first one) separated with a dot or a single
       number.

       Specifies column width and its units. There are three size types:

       - absolute size - column width is specified in characters

           set viewcolumns=-100{name},20.15{ext}

         results in two columns with lengths of 100 and 20 and a reserved space
         of five characters on the left of second column.

       - relative (percent) size - column width is specified in percents of view
         width

           set viewcolumns=-80%{name},15%{ext},5%{mtime}

         results in three columns with lengths of 80/100, 15/100 and 5/100 of
         view width.

       - auto size (default) - column width is automatically determined

           set viewcolumns=-{name},{ext},{mtime}

         results in three columns with length of one third of view width. There
         is no size adjustment to content, since it will slow down rendering.

       Columns of different sizing types can be freely mixed in one view. Though
       sometimes some of columns can be seen partly or be completely invisible
       if there is not enough space to display them.

       Column name

       This is just a sort key surrounded with curly braces, e.g.

         {name},{ext},{mtime}

       {name} and {iname} keys are the same and present both for consistency
       with 'sort' option.

       Empty curly braces ({}) are replaced with the default secondary column
       for primary sort key. So after the next command view will be displayed
       almost as if 'viewcolumns' is empty, but adding ellipsis for long file
       names:

         set viewcolumns=-{name}..,6{}.

       Cropping specifier

       It's from one to three dots after closing curly brace in column format.

       Specifies type of text truncation if it doesn't fit in the column.
       Currently three types are supported:

         - truncation - text is truncated

             set viewcolumns=-{name}.

           results in truncation of names that are too long too fit in the view.

         - adding of ellipsis - ellipsis on the left or right are added when
           needed

             set viewcolumns=-{name}..

           results in that ellipsis are added at the end of too long file names.

         - none (default) - text can pass column boundaries

             set viewcolumns=-{name}...,{ext}

           results in that long file names can partially be written on the ext
           column.

Color schemes
       The color schemes in vifm can be applied in two different ways:

         - as the primary color scheme;

         - as local to a pane color scheme.

       Both types are set using :colorscheme command, but of different forms:

         - :colorscheme color_scheme_name - for the primary color scheme;

         - :colorscheme color_scheme_name directory - for local color schemes.

       Look of different parts of the TUI (Text User Interface) is determined in
       this way:

         - Border, TopLineSel, TopLine, CmdLine, ErrorMsg, StatusLine, JobLine,
           SuggestBox and WildMenu are always determined by the primary color
           scheme;

         - CurrLine, Selected, Directory, Link, BrokenLink, Socket, Device,
           Executable, Fifo and Win are determined by primary color scheme and a
           set of local color schemes, which can be empty.

       There might be a set of local color schemes because they are structured
       hierarchically according to file system structure. For example, having
       the following piece of file system:

         ~
         `-- bin
            |
            `-- my

       Two color schemes:

         # ~/.vifm/colors/for_bin
         highlight Win cterm=none ctermfg=white ctermbg=red
         highlight CurrLine cterm=none ctermfg=red ctermbg=black

         # ~/.vifm/colors/for_bin_my
         highlight CurrLine cterm=none ctermfg=green ctermbg=black

       And these three commands in the vifmrc file:

         colorscheme Default
         colorscheme for_bin ~/bin
         colorscheme for_bin_my ~/bin/my

       File list will look in the following way for each level:

       - ~/ - Default color scheme
         black background
         cursor with blue background

       - ~/bin/ - mix of Default and for_bin color schemes
         red background
         cursor with black background and red foreground

       - ~/bin/my/ - mix of Default, for_bin and for_bin_my color schemes
         red background
         cursor with black background and green foreground

Trash directory
       vifm has support of trash directory, which is used as temporary storage
       for deleted files or files that were cut.  Using trash is controlled by
       the 'trash' option, and exact path to the trash can be set with
       'trashdir' option.  Trash directory in vifm differs from the system-wide
       one by default, because of possible incompatibilities of storing deleted
       files among different file managers.  But one can set 'trashdir' to
       "~/.local/share/Trash" to use a "standard" trash directory.

       There are two scenarios of using trash in vifm:

         1. As a place for storing files that were cut by "d" and may be
            inserted to some other place in file system.

         2. As a storage of files, that are deleted but not purged yet.

       The first scenario uses deletion ("d") operations to put files to trash
       and put ("p") operations to restore files from trash directory.  Note
       that such operations move files to and from trash directory, which can be
       long term operations in case of different partitions or remote drives
       mounted locally.

       The second scenario uses deletion ("d") operations for moving files to
       trash directory and :empty command-line command to purge all previously
       deleted files.

       Deletion and put operations depend on registers, which can point to files
       in trash directory.  Normally, there are no nonexistent files in
       registers, but vifm doesn't keep track of modifications under trash
       directory, so one shouldn't expect value of registers to be absolutely
       correct if trash directory was modified not by operation that are meant
       for it.  But this won't lead to any issues with operations, since they
       ignore nonexistent files.

Client-Server
       vifm supports remote execution of command-line mode commands as well as
       remote changing of directories.  This is possible using --remote command-
       line argument.

       To execute a command remotely combine --remote argument with -c <command>
       or +<command>.  For example:

         vifm --remote -c 'cd /'
         vifm --remote '+cd /'

       To change directory not using command-line mode commands one can specify
       paths right after --remote argument, like this:

         vifm --remote /
         vifm --remote ~
         vifm --remote /usr/bin /tmp

       If there are several running instances, the target can be specified with
       --server-name option (otherwise, the first one lexicographically is
       used):

         vifm --server-name work --remote ~/work/project

       List of names of running instances can be obtained via --server-list
       option.  Name of the current one is available via v:servername.


       v:servername
              server name of the running vifm instance.  Empty if client-server
              feature is disabled.

Plugin
       Plugin for using vifm in vim as a file selector.

       Commands:

         :EditVifm   select a file or files to open in the current buffer.
         :SplitVifm  split buffer and select a file or files to open.
         :VsplitVifm vertically split buffer and select a file or files to open.
         :DiffVifm   select a file or files to compare to the current file with
                     :vert diffsplit.
         :TabVifm    select a file or files to open in tabs.

       Each command accepts up to two arguments: left pane directory and right
       pane directory.  After arguments are checked, vifm process is spawned in
       a special "file-picker" mode.  To pick files just open them either by
       pressing l, i or Enter keys, or by running :edit command.  If no files
       are selected, file under the cursor is opened, otherwise whole selection
       is passed to the plugin and opened in vim.

       The plugin have only two settings.  It's a string variable named
       g:vifm_term to let user specify command to run GUI terminal.  By default
       it's equal to 'xterm -e'.  And another string variable named g:vifm_exec,
       which equals "vifm" by default and specifies path to vifm's executable.
       To pass arguments to vifm use g:vifm_exec_args, which is empty by
       default.

       To use the plugin copy the vifm.vim file to either the system wide
       vim/plugin directory or into ~/.vim/plugin.

       If you would prefer not to use the plugin and it is in the system wide
       plugin directory add

       let loaded_vifm=1

       to your ~/.vimrc file.

Reserved
       The following command names are reserved and shouldn't be used for user
       commands.

         g[lobal]
         v[global]

ENVIRONMENT
       VIFM   Points to main configuration directory (usually ~/.vifm/).

       MYVIFMRC
              Points to main configuration file (usually ~/.vifm/vifmrc).

       These environment variables are valid inside vifm and also can be used to
       configure it by setting some of them before running vifm.

       When $MYVIFMRC isn't set, it's made as $VIFM/vifmrc (exception for
       Windows: vifmrc in the same directory as vifm.exe has higher priority
       than $VIFM/vifmrc).

       See "Startup" section above for more details.

       VIFM_FUSE_FILE
              On execution of external commands this variable is set to the full
              path of file used to initiate FUSE mount of the closes mount point
              from current pane directory up.  It's not set when outside FUSE
              mount point.  When vifm is used inside terminal multiplexer, it
              tries to set this variable as well (it doesn't work this way on
              its own).
