==== Description: ====
gnuit (GNU Interactive Tools) is a set of interactive text-mode tools,
closely integrated with the shell.  

It contains an extensible file system browser, an 
ascii/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer and some other related
utilities and shell scripts.  It can be used to increase the speed and
efficiency of most of the daily tasks such as copying and moving files and
directories, invoking editors, compressing and uncompressing files, creating
and expanding archives, compiling  programs, sending mail, etc.  It looks
nice, has colors (if the
 standard ANSI color sequences are supported) and is user-friendly.

One of the main advantages of gnuit is its flexibility.  It is not limited to
a given set of commands.  The configuration file can be easily enhanced,
allowing the user to add new commands or file operations, depending on its
needs or preferences.

==== Other Software Required: ====
terminfo or termcap or ncurses or curses

==== Other Comments: ====
gnuit was formerly known as git

It has been renamed as of this release, earlier versions
are at although I'm about to ask for that
to be moved to /gnu/gnuit/old and replaced with a symlink

I'm adopting it after a long hiatus
