I find very useful "restore previous selection" (Ctrl-M) command in FAR (http://farmanager.com/)

i think its not hard to implement this

FAR's manual doesn't explain how their "Restore selection" command behaves. At first I thought they take time into consideration: you mark some files (point A), wait a while, modify the selection (point B), and "Restore selection" would return you to point A. But it seems that it's not quite how their feature works. If anybody has the details of their implementation (or of other "commanders"' implementation of similar features), please mention it here.

I implemented this feature for mc2:


(It's far advanced than FAR's. It remembers a stack of selections per directory.)
