In Response to: [Help!] Zcolors.ini RGB numbers- default colours supplied thanks (Zdenek Hladik)

Nice shots from Midnight Commander. To be fair, color schemes are
something ZTree does quite well, but what it's lacking, like
(probably) all the file managers out there, is (optionally)
coloring each file component separately, the way Excel colors
its cells based on some user criteria.


In this screenshot that Zdenek links to, wouldn't it be nice if, say, all of
the file DATES created on "May 12 hh:mm" (I can count 10 of them,

Just the file DATE, independently of NAME, EXT,... colors. This is
what I'm asking folks to visualize, it's not hard, and would
suddenly make sense if you saw it. (I had this prototyped in a file
manager on OpenVMS that I never got to finish...)

Colors take no space (unlike #tags in other software), and can be
used to filter, sort, tag, in addition to highlighting what's relevant
to the user -- but this can't be implemented if the entire line
is of a single color, sigh...

Yes, this has been my #1 ZEP/obsession since forever,
and it's well known by everybody here, but you seem to
be a newcomer, so I'm bringing this up again after a
month or so in this post:

Some history for you to catch up, if you find this topic
of interest. I'm basically repeating myself, not understanding
why nobody sees the unique value and power that would
benefit ZTree:
