StereoShell better than Filer?

Stereo Shell better than Filer?

I am an avid user of Stereo Shell (ON DISK icon), a file manager application very similar to Filer, but more powerful. The main program file is 28K. An additional setup program is about 20K or so, but can be discarded after setup. I set Stereo Shell up to work in Application Manager, so when I close Filer (using PALCLF.ZIP (ON DISK icon)), I free up 60K. I use Stereo Shell when I have to do file housekeeping. It works Great!

The program can be setup to unarchive files, browse, view text in archived files without extracting them (a cool feature), and so on, depending on the file's extension. Then, when you highlight a filename and press (ENTER), a menu pops up displaying the things you can do with the file based on the extension -- .ZIP, .ARC, etc. Text files can be viewed, printed, renamed, deleted, copied, and more. For executable files, you will first be asked if you want to run them or view them. And for the technically inclined, the program has one of the best HEX viewers out there.

Another feature allows you to sort your files in the same fashion as Filer -- by extension, alphabetically, by date, size or disk order. Color can be added for desktop use.

The program is so complete it even has a Screen Saver built-in! And small -- that was the major selling point for me. It doesn't take that much memory to run either. I've used it with only 125K available in a pinch.

It really is a great program, and shareware too!
