The File Browser is available via the Chebucto Community Net Services page or by entering [go files], one of many shortcut commands. Once in the file browser you will be presented with a list of existing filenames and directories. The public_html directory is your showcase. Files placed in the public_html directory can be viewed but not altered by anyone on the World Wide Web who cares to visit. Another directory is called mail. We recommend that you not edit the files and directories found in mail. They contain your mail messages.

You can change the way you view your file listing by setting your options. To reach the options screen, press "s" Among the file management options available are:

	lo(N)g file listing
	l(I)st directory style

While in the file browser, you can view a file by highlighting the filename and pressing the right arrow or by entering the number preceding it. To return to the file listing, press the left arrow or Control-b.

While viewing a file, you can use the following keystrokes:
