Select and run option
I am new user for Notepad++ (moving from Scite/scintilla) Now I am looking for select and run/execute option in notepadd++. I didnt find that option, please help me.
In Scite: if the file is bat file i can select code and do Ctrl+0 (zero), which execute that selected of code … This is helpfull on running anything and everything if it is bacth file.
the builtin function is Run (F5) which can execute an external program together with your file
provided as a parameter.
See here for a more detailed description.
This means you can run batch files, python script, c program and so on but you provide your
complete file like
cmd /k python.exe “$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)”
“$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)” is the path of the active document.
In this article it is also mentioned that there is a plugin called NppExec which has much more functionality.
Maybe worth to try it as well.
