Custom Commands

Custom commands are similar to command shell batch files. They allow Source Insight to spawn any command line driven tool, and to capture its output. Custom commands can also execute Windows programs.

Customs commands can execute, and then return to Source Insight. The output of shell custom commands can be captured into a file for editing, or can be pasted into the current selection. Custom commands are stored as part of the current configuration.

Custom commands can be used to spawn compilers, source control programs, and file filters, such as “sort”.

Tip: A shortcut for editing a custom command is to hold down the Ctrl key while selecting the command. The Custom Commands dialog box will appear for that command.
