Own source code browser/editor

Win 9x/NT/2000

Microsoft Internet Explorer

There is not allowed in MSIE user settings of external source code browser/editor. Default is NOTEPAD.EXE where is famous 64kB file size limitation.

Browse is possible to change using parameter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\View Source Editor\Editor Name. Problem comes when your editor don't know how to open long file name containing spaces. MSIE cancatenates key value and name of file. E.g. Programmers File Editor takes spaces as field delimiter and tries open more files. IE6 works fine and wrapper cannot be used.

To overcome is possible set as external source editor small wrapper which executes own editor with correct file name (quote delimited).
