==============================================================================
1.  Intro                                       *VimExplorer-start*

What is VimExplorer ?
VimExplorer is a file manager, it can do a lot of file operations such as
copy, delete, move, preview, search and so on. Also it has a variety of other
capacities and customization abilities.

You can start VimExplorer by the following command:
>
        :VE
<
Then it will ask you for the starting directory, default is the current path.
>
        VimExplorer (directory): /home/username/
<
You can change it to some other directories or just push "Enter" to start it.

The second approach to start VimExplorer:
>
        :VE [directory]
<
Example:
>
        :VE /usr/src/
<
Now, VimExplorer will start using the path '/usr/src/'. When you are typing
the path, <tab> and <ctrl-d> will help you to complete the path automatically.
After all of these operations, you can see a new tab which has two panels
within it, one is the "Tree Panel" and the other is "File Panel". From now you
will have a happy journey using the powerful file manager.
