script type
Launches current file with the associated program.

For example, if you are editing an HTML file, and type the command LaunchAssociated, your default browser will open it.

It can be used on any file type, such as .xml, .html, .java or even .png, anything that is associated with a program.

Tested on Windows 7, but it should work on Mac OS X and most of the POSIX systems. Tests on these (and any other) operating systems is appreciated.


The development is on Github.
