Welcome to the UnixTree guided tour !
Stop smoking and fasten your seatbelts while the images are loading...
And here we start, from the very beginning:
The logo
(after starting the program):
  Start logo
The directory window
(which is seen first of all):
  Directory view
This is an alternative view mode for the directory window
(which is selected, following ALT-'F'ilemode, by ALT-'D'irmode):
  Directory view
The "tag directory" commands
(which is the CTRL menu in original DOS XTree):
  Tag dir commands
The "alt directory" commands
(hit F4 for it):
  Tag alt commands
The file window
(hit CR from the directory view):
  File view
The "tag file" commands
(which is the CTRL menu in original DOS XTree):
  Tag file commands
The "alt file" commands
(hit F4 for it):
  Tag alt commands
Viewing a file's contents
(the 'V'iew command):
  Viewing a file's contents
The tagged files view commands, in contrast
(note it has a "prev[ious] file" command, which DOS XTree never had!):
  View tagged files commands
And this are the view mode commands
(which hide under the 'W'indow submenu):
  View mode options
Ever wanted to know something about the viewed file's properties?
In UnixTree, just hit the "?"-key (in file view mode) for it:
  View file info
Now, we also have an "Auto view" command
(you can toggle the cursor scrolling between the file list and the view window):
And, of course, here we can also keep informed about the file's properties.
Again, hit the "?"-key (in file view mode) for it:
  Autoview file info
This is the split screen
(Combining dir and file mode windows):
  Split screen
Also in split screen we can have the statistics window, too
(again, hit "?" - neither DOS XTree nor any other clone have it!):
  Split info
And now it becomes really freaky!
Autoview and Split screen can be combined:
  Autoview and Split
For relief, now watch the about screen
(somewhat hidden, hit the "Kfunc"-key (by default CTRL+]) and "?"):
  About screen
Also an Application menu is here
(which can be freely user configured with any entries you like):
  Application menu
The configuration main menu
(note it has some more options than DOS XTree's):
Confuration options are spread to a total of 6 screens.
This is the 6th and last one:
  Config page 6
And, of course, there's also a color configuration menu
(not as realistic as DOS XTree's, more implicitly):
  Color configuration
Context sensivite online help is available in all screens
(this the the "Commands" help index):
  Help index
And this an example of a help text
(about the File/'A'ttributes/'P'ermissions function):
  Help on Permissions
The according command dialog looks like this
(hit "A" for Attributes from the file window):
  Attributes menu
File permissions can be changed here
(a submenu of 'A'ttributes, invoked by "P" for permissions):
  Permissions submenu
In DOS XTree it's called "Speed key navigation", and is invoked by SHIFT+[any letter],
in UnixTree it's the 'G'oto command that jumps to the file beginning with the entered letters:
  Goto command
Unix-filesystem specific "Hard"- or "Soft"-Links
can be created with the 'L'ink command; its menu looks like this:
  Link menu
The prune command offers a very nice graphical represantation
of which directories exactly are going to be wiped out forever:
  Prune command
The equivalent to DOS XTree's 'L'og command is 'N'ode in UnixTree
(this new term was introduced with respect to the absence of drive letters in Unix):
  Node command
And last, but definitely not least, one of the most cool additions in UnixTree,
the capability to log to an FTP server, and manipulate files very similar to your local drive:
  FTP logging
The guided tour is over, now choose one of the download page,
and then you can play with all this cool UnixTree features for yourself!
