Adding "dosearch" result to as a parameter?
« on: November 11, 2007, 11:03:51 AM »
I'd like to do something along the lines of:

1000>>>notepad>->notepad.exe "dosearch C:\"

Well, the syntax is obviously all wrong but basically I want write:

notepad and have the option to select a file, for example c:\a.txt which will execute:

notepad.exe c:\a.txt

How do I do that?

Thanks

justice

create a new alias:
group alias name: notepad
result: C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe $$1

then you can add +notepad to a farr command to open it in notepad.
for example: .nfo +notepad to open the most important .nfo file with notepad.
