MCVIEW(1)                   GNU Midnight Commander                   MCVIEW(1)




NAME

       mcview - Internal file viewer of GNU Midnight Commander.


USAGE

       mcview [-bcCdfhstVx?] file


DESCRIPTION

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


OPTIONS

       -b     Force black and white display.

       -c     Force color mode on terminals where mcview defaults to black and
              white.

       -C <keyword>=<FGcolor>,<BGcolor>:<keyword>= ...
              Specify a different color set.  See the Colors section in  mc(1)
              for more information.

       -d     Disable mouse support.

       -f     Display  the  compiled-in  search  paths  for Midnight Commander
              files.

       -t     Used only if the code was compiled with S-Lang and terminfo:  it
              makes  the Midnight Commander use the value of the TERMCAP vari-
              able for the terminal information instead of the information  on
              the system wide terminal database

       -V     Displays the version of the program.

       -x     Forces xterm mode.  Used when running on xterm-capable terminals
              (two screen modes, and able to send mouse escape sequences).



COLORS

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

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



FILES

       /usr/share/mc/mc.hlp

       /usr/share/mc/mc.ini

              The default system-wide setup for GNU Midnight  Commander,  used
              only if the user’s own ~/.mc/ini file is missing.

       /usr/share/mc/mc.lib

              Global  settings  for  the Midnight Commander.  Settings in this
              file affect all users, whether they have ~/.mc/ini or not.

       $HOME/.mc/ini

              User’s own setup.  If this file is present, the setup is  loaded
              from here instead of the system-wide startup file.
