Freeware Open
Source Software
for OpenVMS

VTfm the Norton Commander Style Video Terminals file manager. It is a freeware open source program, which was developed by me especially for DEC VT-series terminals and OpenVMS operating system for DEC VAX, Alpha and Intel Itanium (IA64) architectures. Also you can use VTfm with terminal emulators, which can emulate DEC VT-series terminals (PowerTerm, for example). The initial release was developed in 1991 with name NCvtf and renamed to VTfm in august 2004. The source code also was redesigned. The current release is 2.3-A.
