Double Commander

Double Commander

Double Commander is an open source cross platform open source file manager with two panels side by side. This file manager is inspired by Total Commander (a shareware file manager for Windows) and features some new ideas.

Double Commander can be run on several platforms and operating systems including Linux and Windows. It supports 32-bit and 64-bit processors. Double Commander is written in Free Pascal/Lazarus.

The goal of Double Commander is to create a program close to Total Commander in operation and with maximum compatibility via the plugins and configuration files. However, Double Commander has some important advantages: it's free to use, works with different operating systems, and is open source.
