Textpipe variables

Postby willsteele » Sat Jan 23, 2010 2:00 am

Are there variables unique to textpipe that can be used to refer to values set in the GUI? For instance, if I want to set a run external program filter option referencing a filename (or foldername) in the Files to Process tab, I would like to be able to use a simple variable to reference this piece of information. For example, I know in a bat file I could use a for command with a /f %~pV variable substitution, assuming that %V is the variable, to get the folder path. Anything along the lines of the %~pV option, just as an example, is what I'm trying to find.

You can embed environment variables e.g. %COMSPEC% in most fields, and also macros e.g. @FULLINPUTFILENAME.

It depends on the field in question - please consult the help file for detailed information.
