I've rewritten it as a console mode VB application. You'll need
VB libraries, but probably you already have them.
Get starshoj.exe - it works
same way as shortcut.exe, except this one creates shortcut in the Startup folder.
Multiple viewer/editor windows are supported - use CTRL-TAB
to toggle between them and file panels. This can even be done
when you are viewing files from FTP site! Using FAR to browse
FTP site is almost as good as having files on local disk, only
Buil-in viewer has key Shift-F8 which allows you
to switch between cyrillic encodings!
Windows Paste key (Shift-Ins) is supported.
EXE files for (some) Microsoft installation programs are actually
.CAB files. So, if you change filetype to .CAB, you can use
FAR to transparently see file contents!!! (Though, extract doesn't
work this way).
CTRL-1, CTRL-2... CTRL-7 in Alt-F1 toggle how derscriptive
drive list will be.
