after some tinkering, i've managed to get this working via alias and it get very interesting now as all cli tools that "displays info and exit" can now be routed this way in a nice Farr memo window. check out the screenshot and thanks again czechboy!
as advised by mouser, i've re-packed czechboy's Console plugin with the citytime files and (exe and alias) so that you only have to unzip into Farr's "Plugins" folder to get it working
. btw, for those not wanting download the whole thing, this is the code that triggers the plugin:
1000>>>citytime>->ct $$1| dosearch cn "%FARRDIR%\Plugins\Console\Citytime\citytime.exe" $$1 &&>+>^ct (.*)
note: CityTime is available here
and distribution is subjected to the following terms
edit: duh! forgot to attach the file. but mouser had kindly zipped everything nicely. see one post below.
