The situation's this: I have a visualisation app that runs on Windows. It accepts data files in various formats, and renders them in a window. The difficulty that I have is that the app doesn't do the sensible thing and decide which type of data file one's presenting it with by inspecting the file extension - what one must do is invoke it with a type argument followed by the name of the file.
application -foo data.foofor 'foo' format data;
application -bar data.barfor 'bar' format data;
and so on.
How do I make Helper Applications entries to deal with this? There seems to be no way, so far as I can see, to pass arguments to an app via the
Open it with:field, which seemed to me to be the obvious way to deal with the problem.
Any help very gratefully received!
