I am new to FARR, after trying -- and dropping -- most of the competitors (Launchy, Slickrun, Keybreeze, etc.) and am really impressed thus far (FARR?). I have a reasonable understanding of reg expressions, though I am still figuring out aliases.
What mystifies me as a new user is why there is apparently no native, out-of-the-box handling of arguments. For example, I am very happy to discover that entering k- in the box brings up k-meleon browser at the top of the search list, I hit tab, Enter, and launch the browser.
However, if try to give it an argument in the box,
C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\k-meleon.exe www.google.com
on hitting return I get nothing. It seems to me that launching a program this way with argument(s) would be the expected default (i.e. no alias) behavior, or, I guess, the behavior I would want. Just as I can type in a dos console
"C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\k-meleon.exe" www.google.com
and launch an instance of the browser with the URL. (Parens required -- but couldn't FARR even make them unnecessary?)
I won't be surprised if I am missing something simple. Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question, and thanks for your hard work and really impressive coding.
PS Just now it occurs to me I can use
run C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\k-meleon.exe www.google.com
which works nicely, but if I start by typing run k-.... FARR finds a list of Rs rather than Ks. Does this mean in order to make use of *any* arguments, the user is obliged to have set up an alias in advance? Thanks again.
