Action is a program which performs certain action on file, depending on it's
filetype. Similar programs already exist, but none has all advantages of
Action:

-> Supports FileID.library, recognising 645 filetypes, and even more
additional filetypes could be added.
-> However, such large number of filetypes is no headache for configuring,
because they are aliased into several groups...
-> Unlimited number of actions could be defined. View, Edit and Identify are
included in distribution.
-> Easy to configure with font-sensitive prefs GUI.
-> Filetypes could be forced (f.e. if you want to view html file as text or
picture as hex data).

Benefits of using Action:

-> You can configure every program which requires external viewer only once,
and forget about it. Guide on how to configure ToolManager, DOpus4 and MIME -
compliant programs to use Action is included in Action.guide.
-> If you change program you are using for viewing/editing some filetype, now
you should apply that change in ActionPrefs only, not in every program which
had used it!
-> You don't need to think about viewer/editor names, paths and arguments
when working in Shell.

If you are not sure could Action be useful to you, there is Test Action
script in Action archive, which can make neccesary arrangements for you to
test Action, without any permanent changes to your system.
