It's really called Midnight Commander (mc), it comes with
a versatile editor and makes a Norton Commander user feel
at home. The two panel layout is ideal for source-target
operations (copying and moving files). You'll find the
port as misc/mc; from its pkg-descr file:

GNU Midnight Commander is a user-friendly yet powerful file manager
and visual shell, useful to novice and guru alike. It provides a
clear, user-friendly, and somewhat protected interface to a Unix
system while making many frequent file operations more efficient and
preserving the full power of the command prompt. You will wonder how
you could ever live without it.
