Convenient renaming of files in mc

Description

By default, file copy/move command displays a dialog with current working directory from other panel in the destination editbox. This is very convenient for moving and copying, but is very inconvenient for renaming files as you need to re-enter the name.

I suggest a following feature: let mc display the original file name as destination if the same directory is opened on both panels and if there is only one entry selected.

Simple patch is included, review it please...

Just use shift-f5 and shift-f6.

Hello.

Excuse me for replying an old feature request. Did the behaviour change? This is what happened under 4.8.18 version:

  • Shift + F6: Midnight Commander asks me to delete the directory where the cursor is positioned.
  • Shift + F5: No response.

Anyway, please take in consideration to improve Midnight Commander: The fork with Lua support has many interesting improvements, for example. The stagnation of this project is making new projects to emerge, maybe this is good news for the users too.

Kind regards.

Both Shift+F5 and Shift+F6 work for me correctly on 4.8.18 on Debian stable. Sounds like your terminal emulator is improperly configured. Unless we are able to reproduce this will be closed as invalid.

Re. Lua fork, we know about it and are working together with its author. Re. stagnation, please feel free to fork the project and maintain it better than we do.
