This plugin mimics the "open selected file" in PSPad.

I am a PHP developer and i often see an 'require_once("../this/is/some/file.php");'. In pspad you can select the whole path (../this/is/some/file.php) and open it from the menu.

Now you can do the same in notepad++. Just select the whole path and press alt+o, or use the button in the toolbar on top. It will open the file automatically.

The plugin understands the relative path.

The code is also available on https://bitbucket.org/sgezel/quickopenplugin

    Windows 7 64bit. Notepad++ v651 unicode -- From what i have tested, it seems that the plugin works when the text containing the file name is in an 'actual' file, that has been SAVED, but if I type a name on a recently opened "New Tab", then the plugin does not open a file pointed by the text I have just typed. If I type the filename on a tab that belongs to an existing file, even before saving said file with the filename, then I AM able to use the plugin to open the appointed file. sample: create file1.txt, save it create file2.txt. save it. Edit file1.txt. type c:\file2.txt paint the text [c:\file2.txt] press Alt+o, or the menu icon, or the menu option on the menu Result: it works. Test 2: Open "new tab" type "c:\file2.txt" select the text "c:\file2.txt" and press [Alt+o] Result: nothing. failed. Does this make sense? hope I am not reporting a 'false negative'... THANKS

    the files that I edit are almost always LINUX based. they use "/" instead of normal "\" used in windows based files and addresses. there, you also never find ".." as one layer above. addresses start at one point and just continue downward. could you please ass this capability to the plugin? Regards
