Far has great plugins to navigate Zip Archives, JSON Files, SQLite databases, and even PE Files. When
something.zipis the file under the current cursor and I hit
Enter, Far will automatically chose the correct plugin and let me browse the Zip file like a directory. It works the same for database files and json files. However,
something.exewill be executed when I hit enter. If I rename it to
something.bin, I can hit enter and the ImpEx plugin will automatically be deployed.
I would like to have a macro that will automatically apply the correct plugin (if available) to any file, in particular to executables. This will save me the hassle of renaming them.
My question is: How do I do this programmatically? Is there some Far command or a macro directive that will navigate "into" any file by picking the correct plugin? I tried to do this with the
goto:command, but it does not work.
Note that my problem can likely be solved by temporarily renaming the file via macro, but I am looking for a solution which does not make any filesystem changes.
Thanks a lot in advance!
