Re: Stopped reading at "command line tool" ...

Personally, I never warmed to NC, or mc, or tree, or ISPF member listings, or OS/400's WRKF, or any of those other full-screen filesystem navigators. Or to their GUI equivalents. ls and find, on their own or as part of a pipeline, have always seemed more straightforward to me.

But to each their own, at least as far as incidental use goes. For system-administration tasks that need to be audited or repeatable, I think anything other than a script (in whatever language) is pretty daft.
