Description

There are many operations which may never complete:

  • file copying/moving in case the source file is unreadable
  • file viewing (just for fun try opening /proc/PID/pagemap on a PC with a lot of RAM)
  • file saving in case the destination media is faulty
  • searching for files

etc. etc. etc.

It would be great if MC had a timer for all the operations and allowed to terminate them in case they take too much time or do very little over time.

"interruptible" would mean _always_ responding to ctrl-c (or esc, but that might be a lot harder to implement), and i'd be all for it.

a watchdog, however, is a completely different beast, and i'm not convinced it really fits into an application like mc.
