did not find a way how to tell vifm to format dates/times the way ls -l does that
You mean when it prints either time or year? Didn't notice it before (and I use long-iso time format there either way). I don't think this can be done via
'timefmt', there is probably no sequence to do it.
not exactly the same either
For me mc just displays size in bytes.
it would be much better if viewcolumns supports custom characters in the format string
You want to do something like this?
is there anything more i could do?
If you're asking about something not mentioned above, then I don't know as I haven't used mc beyond doing a couple of primitive operations.
