2001-03-23 · New plugin for HTML-Kit: hkLaunchProg
hkLaunchProg version 1.0.0
Because HTML-Kit applies server mappings when running a program, some programs like Notepad cannot open the file when using Tools|Program... (Notepad cannot open a file with prefix http://)
For this reason, I wrote a small plugin to launch the external programs while ignoring server mappings.
The plugin uses the program list and the program configuration set up under Edit|Preferences|Programs, so there is no need to maintain more than one list of programs. You can assign keyboard shortcuts to the most commonly used actions (CTRL+F10, then assign shortcut to action under "Tools > Launch program".
The hkLaunchProg plugin resides in the Tools section of the action bar in HTML-Kit. There is a menu item for each of the programs in the program list.
Version 1.0.0 does not include DDE support, but in practice this does not limit the usefulness of the plugin.
