I'm working on a 'helper program' for FARR. This program relies on a FARR alias. I don't want the person to edit the alias and change the path to my helper tool, if possible. Are there best practices regarding creating / adding my alias to FARR?
What I've tried is looking at the alias file in a text editor, it's XML. I can write a xml reader / writer in AHK parsing the alias file and adding my alias to the custom aliases, this is a lot of work. if FARR supports extra custom alias files (for example 'myhelpertool.alias') and would these be overwritten / deleted when FARR is updated? Any experience and guidance would be appreciated.
(I'd use IRC but my workplace blocks ident requests and now I can't connect to the donationcoder channel -- it used to work a week or so ago).
