the biggest problem with this plugin idea is that it threatens to be so complicated that it never gets coded, so we need to figure out a nice reasonable set of ideas.
at first i thought this plugin idea was pretty much like searching for lines in a file (which is very similar to searching for files in a folder...)
i think this plugin will be great
however i DO think a simple core
function for aliases would really be great, aside from this powerful plugin
this function is :
dosearchfile similar to dosearch....
or simply a new form of keyword for dosearches
then you can add an action modifier... and you can do many things
for instance i found a simple .ahk script on the autohotkey forum, it works as follow :
if you run msn.ahk email@example.com
it opens the conversation with your friend firstname.lastname@example.org
with a core function in less than a minute you can set up the following alias :
dosearch +file_with_list_of_friend_emails +open_msn_ahk $$1
then set open_msn_ahk as the following alias :
i can find dozens of uses...
