[Geany-devel] catching run_cmd option at runtime?

Hi Roberto,

The build system is being changed significantly in the SVN version of
Geany.  The interface available to plugins will be very different, The
version currently in SVN has some problems, but I hope to commit a new
version in the next few days, I'm just trying to extensively test it
now.  There is already a request from the latex people to be able to
dynamically change the compile commands and I think it should work for
your run commands as well.  My current idea is that plugins can
register a callback called when the menu item is activated and the
callback supplies all the information required to run the command
(comand, working directory and if the output is to be parsed for
errors, sent to a terminal or ignored).
