CONFIGURATIONvfu configuration is divided in two parts (files):
This file contains configuration for external editor and pager, favorite directories, file-type colorization. This is plain text file which format is described below. vfu only reads vfu.conf, it never writes in it!
This file contains all Options/Toggles which can be changed from inside
vfu --- Options menu. vfu.options is binary file and is overwritten on
vfu exit or on change option event! Deleting this file will reset vfu
toggles to default values. vfu.options is not portable between vfu
Location of vfu.conf
$HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.conf (if $RC_PREFIX is exported)
Other files location
$HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/What is "$RC_PREFIX" and why to use it? Some more information for this can be found in the CONFIG file which is supplied with vfu package.

vfu-4.00.bin.dos.tgzAll packages are TAR+GZIP .tgz, bz2 and zip are available on request.
NOTE: Always check HISTORY document --- it often contains some usefull notes!
