When you first start to play with a powerful piece of software, you don't know what it can do, then you think it can do anything.

I can get FARR to take the info from the box and write it to an ini file with nircmd. But then can I have another program launched (an AHK script) that will use that ini file? I'm not seeing it right now. Is there a way to do this - to get FARR to do two things when I hit enter?

Offcourse you can do that :)

You can do that with an alias similar to this one:

1000>>>>->http://www.google.com ;;; notepad.exe>+>^test$

You can specify multiple commands to execute by separating them with ;;;

Thank you. I have totally missed the three semi-colon trick. I'll be playing with it.
