it would be great if one could specify the result of an alias in a text file :
it would allow people to create dynamic aliases...
practical example :
i have 100 projects...
i have code snippets, urls, texts, ... for all my projects
all those snippets are stored in 100 folders (1 project = 1 folder)
i'd like to use the same alias (an alias to copy the snippets into the clipboard...) for all my projects
since i already have a global project manager (global meaning system-wide)
i'd like to choose the current project then use the alias to paste the snippets BUT only the snippets of that particular project
to do that now i can (each time i change the current project) :
1) change the path of my dosearch command directly in the FARR alias xml file ... (i don't like that)
2) rename the snippet folder of the current project so that it matches the path in the alias... (or copy the snippets in the folder...)
hope you get the idea...
what i'd like to do :
change the content of the text file... much like 1)
- it does not interfere with FARR
- easier to do
other example :
it's very easy to create an autohotkey script to add a line into a text file
let's say to save urls...
select an url, press the hotkey
then invoke FARR with the appropriate alias, there is your saved url !
there are many uses for this feature, i also suggest that one could specify multiple files in the result list
or even better mix files and actual results...
for example :
Google | http://google.com
file = c:/myfav.txt
Yahoo | http://yahoo.com
file = c:/myfav2.txt
file = c:/otherthings.txt
