#12662 Beginner stuff :shy:
2 weeks, 5 days ago

Hello!

i've recently started using 4coder for programming (i'm not that good either, just starting so i don't really understand 90% of the things i've read when searching for this :shy:) and i was trying to setup something that i could use to call 4coder from terminal but I'm struggling to do what i intended(I've tried google/forum search before asking this)


my code.bat
1
start "a" "C:\4coder\4ed.exe" -W 


it does like.. 90% of what i want :P..
But if i try to use
1
code +filename
it doesn't do anything, is there a way that i could make it work?


TL;DR -> i can use from terminal
1
vim filename.cpp
but i can't
1
4coder filename.cpp


any tips on how to implement it?

First I'll tell you what I think you're saying you want, to make sure we're on the same page.

It sounds to me like you want to have it setup so you can input:
1
4coder filename.cpp


And have your batch script run 4ed.exe with that filename like this:
1
start "a" "C:\4coder\4ed.exe" -W filename.cpp


Is this what you're looking for? If not ignore everything I say next and clarify for me.

What you need to do for that is use "%*" I am not sure what that thing is called but what it does is take ALL of the parameters after the batch script and repeat them. So your script would look like this:

1
start "a" "C:\4coder\4ed.exe" -W %*


This also means if you ever want two or more files to work, that is possible too:
1
4coder f1.cpp f2.cpp f3.cpp


would execute the command:
1
start "a" "C:\4coder\4ed.exe" -W f1.cpp f2.cpp f3.cpp


ALSO, I should point out that in some versions of 4coder the mechanism that organized the load time files gets broken. I am not sure if it working perfectly in 4.0.21, so your script might be working but still look broken depending on that factor.
