    Log Message:
    New Synchronet File Manager (run using jsexec)

    This is a new TUI-style filebase browser/editor for sysop use. Sysops can search files, descriptions/metadata, uploader names, offline files and then easily remove/delete or edit those file's names, description, uploader.

    Ideas for improvements (e.g. file tagging/bulk deleting) may require updates
    to UIFC. This is a proof of concept at least and provides some functionality already.

    good!
    some ideas:

    * tag and move file to another lib
    * change another attributes.. upload time, credits..
    * edit full description (multiline)

    Add ability to add files, display/edit extended descriptions

    (yes, I know, unzip for DIZ can corrupt the TUI display when adding files)

    Add ability to display and edit extended file descriptions (including
    inserting and deleting lines.

    Fixed bug with moving files between dirs.

    F2 is now just a shortcut for renaming files, ENTER is the main edit/display option key now.

    This really requires an updated sbbs/jsexec to work fully correct (e.g. display/edit extended descriptions that contain blank lines).

    addfiles and delfiles aren't designed to run in a full-screen "TUI" app like fileman.js is, so it wouldn't really result in a very nice sysop experience. you can (now) add files using fileman and you can remove files with it too, so I'm not clear why one would want to spawn those utils from within fileman.js.

    well i just think it would be a good addition. i wouldn't want to sit and watch it run, i'd like it to spawn addfiles or delfiles in the background.

    when you say you can now add files using fileman, do you mean search and add entire directories, or just manually add one?

    You can add one or multiple files (using tagging) with fileman.js, though it will prompt you for the description/metadata for each file. If you want truly automated bulk file additions, just use addfiles.js instead. This Is The Way.

    But if that feature isn't part of the standard version of the file, you'll have to keep applying those changes every time you update that file from the Git repo.

    Text files with recognized plain text file names/extensions can be viewed from within fileman now.

    Some extended descriptions may only be terminated with LF (instead of CRLF),
    so deal with those accordingly. Some auto-translation from LF to CRLF terminated
    extended description lines may occur when editing extended descriptions.
