4.2.7 Auto-start features of MC

Press Enter on a file, and the appropriate program will handle the content of the file. This is a very convenient MC feature.

     executable file:   Execute command
     man, html file:    Pipe content to viewer software
     tar.gz, deb file:  Browse its contents as if subdirectory

In order to allow these viewer and virtual file features to function, viewable files should not be set as executable. Change their status using the chmod command or via the MC file menu.
