The nice shortcut to the Open File Goto Line command.
I have been using a shortcut to the File Open Goto LIne command for some time. Now in the Vedit Online Help, I have justr found an even nicer shortcut.
That example says that, vpw -953 main.cpp.
Just for the fun of it I wanted to work out the general form of that Vedit command as well.
Indeed, that command is a special case of the command Open File and execute the command Goto_Line() command;
File_Open("filename") -c Goto_Line( linenumber)
Choosing the filename and the linenumber parameters, I had no problem executing such a command.
Therefore, I was surprised to see that entering such a command into one of my Miktex commands I ended up with an error message. Since I do not know the length limitation of the commands that I can enter into my Miktex commands, I used the short form of the previous Vedit comman . That did not work either.
I should emphasize that the shortcut works for MikTeX like a charm. I have a hunch that entering such a short cut into other programs, like MiKTeX, was the purpose of that shortcut in the first space.
If you have a reaction, please let me know.
