A RISC OS-like filer for X by Thomas Leonard

Quick start

If you downloaded a source or binary tarball directly, type this ($ is the shell prompt):

$ ./ROX-Filer/AppRun

This will compile the filer (if necessary) and then run it.

However, it is more common to use Zero Install or a distribution package. To get the filer using Zero Install, do:

$ 0alias rox $ rox
