When was $(SYS.var) added to notepad++
Using npp run command to do some testing:
cmd /k echo "$(SYS.TEMP)" $(CURRENT_WORD) $(NPP_DIRECTORY) "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"
Last 3 vars are ok but $(SYS.TEMP) did not work for me. I am using v6.7.7 from 2015 (will update eventually).
Did $(SYS.env-var) get introduced in a later version?
I read http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php?title=External_Programs&oldid=1845 which was written in 2009 and it has $(SYS.env-var) but the v6.6.4 help file http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php/NP%2B%2B_Guides did not mention it.
Interesting. I use the
SYS.varvariables in the NppExec plugin all the time, but I had never tried in the normal Run dialog: I couldn’t get it to work with Notepad++ 7.5.8, so it’s not just that your v6.7.7 is too old for it.
I’m guessing that when those docs were originally created, Notepad++ and NppExec were more “tightly coupled” so that some documentation was written with “blurry lines” between the two.
