Open include files

    Does anyone know if there's a plug-in available that opens include files when, for instance, executing a right-click and select "Open file" on a #include statement in a source file?

    Best rgds,

    select text (i.e. file's address) and press Alt + F5

    Thanks for the info. But pressing Alt+F5 doesn't open the files from the current directory but opens from the Notepad++ directory.
    Can you please tell us how to set the folders so that from next time it opens from the current directory.

    I am working on a new plugin for ctags. There are already a few others (although not good as mine :).
    If you generate tags file with ctags and add the option: --extra=f then ctags adds a tag for every file. So you can perform a tag lookup on the include file and the plugin should be able to open the file.
