Do you miss jEditLauncher? Use RunjEdit!

PURPOSE
--------
This tiny program runs jEdit and gives it over any command-line parameter such as filenames. You can use it to open files in jEdit. For example you can associate some file extension such as .java with it or you can create a link to it from your directory C:\Documents and Settings\\SendTo so that you can open any file in it via the context menu "Send To".

It runs jEdit with the option -reuseview thus opening a file in an existing instance of jEdit unless jEdit is not yet running.

REQUIREMENTS
-------------
1. The program must be in the same directory as jedit.jar because it looks there for it (unpack the zip and move runjedit.exe to wherever your jEdit is.
2. You Java executable must be named javaw.exe and it must be on the system %PATH%

(To modify the PATH variable right-click on "My Computer" on the desktop and select "Properties". In the System Properties window click on the "Advanced" tab. In the Advanced section click the "Environment Variables" button. If you're an Admin edit the variable PATH otherwise add a new user variable called PATH with the value (modified for your computer):
C:\my\path\to\dir\with\javaw.exe;%PATH%
and log out and back in again.)

3. Runjedit have only been tested under Windows 2000/XP but hopefully it runs elsewhere too.

DEVELOPMENT
------------
Runjedit was developed with Dev-C++ but except for the icon it's an ordinary C++ program not bound to Dev-C++.

BUGS
-----
If you find any bugs let me know to maly.velky@email.cz

PS: I've realized that somebody else has published something similar a few days ago and it might be better but since it requires .NET I do release this for those who haven't it.
