Cobra Interactive Query Language V

NAME

V — popup a window with the source text of a file

SYNTAX

	V filename [linenr]

DESCRIPTION

This command is simular to a B or Browse command, but instead of showing the file contents on the command line as text, it pops up a small tcl/tk window with the code that can more easily be browsed separately. An optional linenumber will position the window at the given line. By default the display shows the start of the file.

The window is created independent on the setting of the window/nowindow mode for display commands.

EXAMPLES

	: F	# show the list of current files
	: V file.c
	: V file.c 123
	...

NOTES

This command fails if tcl/tk isn't installed on the system. The command was added in Cobra Version 2.8.
