From installation to getting started with DF‑SHOW on your system.

Directory File Show (DF‑SHOW)

Here you will find a set of utilities which display text files, and a powerful directory display utility. Designed for Unix-like systems.

Installing DF‑SHOW

Packages are available from the Fedora Copr build service:
