If an editor has a Run command, it is typically assigned to
F5. This script offers a variation with Shift-F5. The
text at the cursor position is assumed to be an executable
path of some kind. It can be an Internet URL, email
address, file, or folder -- essentially, Any path that may
be executed with the Windows Start/Run command. Thus, a path could
browse a web page, initiate an email message, open a file, or explore a folder.
This command is often useful when reading plain text email,
since it makes a web or email address behave as if it were a clickable link.
An input box prompts to confirm and possibly edit the path
before it is run. First, however, the text is preprocessed
to better conform to a path specification. The script
strips leading and trailing punctuation marks that are
generally not relevant, e.g., surrounding parentheses or a
period if the path was the last word in a sentence. If the
path seems like an Internet URL or email address but does
not have an appropriate prefix, then one is inserted.
Press Enter to run the accepted path.
