UltraEdit for Linux v1.2 Scripting Enhancements

One of UEx's trademark features is the ability to automate tasks through scripting; v1.2 extends the power of scripting further with includes.

Include a script file in another script

The "include" feature allows you to include/import a script file into another script. The "include" is listed in a line comment as follows.

If both scripts are in the same directory, you can include the script as such:

// include outputWindow1.js

If the scripts are in different directories, you can point to the fully qualified path:

// include C:\Users\TestUser\Documents\UEScripts\MyFunctions.js
