= About WBOpen ==============================================================

WBOpen  allows  you to open files or drawers from Shell in the same way as if
you  doubleclicked  their  icons from WB.  If you don't supply a name, an ASL
requester will pop up.

WBOpen requires OS3.5.  It will not work unless Workbench is loaded.


= Why? ======================================================================

The  main  reason  why I wrote WO was that I got tired of clicking my through
the entire directory tree just to open ONE drawer.  Usually this "one drawer"
would  be  currentdir  in CLI or the source directory in DOpus or Filemaster,
which of course makes the situation seem even more wasted..  =]

Then  there's  those  programs  that store their prefs as icon tooltypes, and
expect you to type the arguments manually when started from Shell..


= Usage =====================================================================

WBOpen  currently  only  takes one argument, which is the name of the file or
drawer  that  you want to open.  The entire commandline is taken as argument,
so you don't have to worry about quotation marks if the name contains spaces.

Here's a few examples to demonstrate how it works:

> wo sys:prefs          ;this brings up the prefs drawer on the wb screen
> wo ""                 ;opens currentdir
> wo file with ttypes   ;launches "file with ttypes" from WB
> wo                    ;let you choose file/dir using a requester


= History ====================================================================

(1.1)  First  public  release.  Rewrote most of the source because the latest
version somehow disappeared from my HD.  Also added support for ASL requester
if argument missing.

(1.0) First version
