Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mc

MC is sometimes useful for managing files or even writing programs. I
use mc all the time, but some of its bugs exist for years. This patch
aggreagtes some useful features:

1) Fix for busy subshell (thanks to Slavaz,
2) Alt+'.' to show/hide hidden files (starting with ".") (thanks to Andrew,
3) Alt+',' to toggle vertical/horizontal layout of panels
4) Added new rules (Qt-related macroses) for syntax highlighting in C++
5) Added new masks for syntax highlighting: 'H' for FLTK headers, 'moc'
   for Qt-generated files, 'hpp' for C++
6) Added new rules for syntax highlighting in C/C++ (highlighting of numeric 
literals from javascript)
7) Added size info of current mount point in "mini info bar" (like in mc-mp)
8) Alt+O <=> Alt+I. Alt+I sucks. Sad, but true.
9) File colorizing depending on its type (thanks to X-Stranger,
10) Removed useless *~ files from autgen-run.patch
11) Added CSS (including Qt stylesheets) and AWK rules for syntax highlighting 
(from mc-mp)
12) Removed asm.syntax. Why do we need it?

How to install:

1) Download mc and patch from
2) Unpack mc
3) Apply patch
4) Download this patch
5) Apply this patch
6) Build mc as usual with dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot


This patch won't be supported by me. Use it for your own risk. I hope
some features will be intergrated into upstream version.
