FeatherPad for OS/2

<< < (2/7) > >>

Martin Iturbide:
Hi

Just some a little issue wiht FeatherPad. I don't know if it is from the program or the WPS.

I created a WPS object called "FeatherPad" on the desktop, and assigned this object the association "Plain Text". When I double click a plain text file (like a txt), it opens FeatherPad but not the .txt file inside the app.

Regards

Andreas Schnellbacher:
Most likely the application does not recognize a filename as a file to open as command line argument.

You can check that yourself: Execute <appname> <filename> and see if that works.

Martin Iturbide:
Hi Andreas

If I execute:

--- Code: --- featherpad c:\config.sys
--- End code ---
It does not open the config.sys file on the app. I guess it is an app limitation then.

Regards

Jochen Schäfer:
It should be able to open any number of files added on the command line. I have to investigate that issue.

What does work is

--- Code: --- featherpad config.sys
--- End code ---
and when I typo-ed confog.sys it even said the file doesn't exist.
What doesn't work is any form of drive letter, w:\config.sys, w:\\config.sys and w:/config.sys all fail. /config.sys and \config.sys succeed as long as I'm on the correct drive, w: in my case.
Seems the problem is the : which *nix uses like we use ;
