Config file with four new entries for ContextMenus and four tiny scripts:

1) "Open with..." (SelectExe) 
 Right-Click on an icon and choose the exec to open the selected icon with. 

2) "New text file..." (CreateNewFile) 
 let's you enter the name first when creating a new text file.

3) "New Shell here" (NewShellHere)
 Right-click a drawer/Disk icon or even in the window of a drawer 
 and select "New Shell here" to open a shell in that dir. 
4) "Open Parent Drawer" (OperParentDrawer)
 of left out icons. (normally the workbench menu entry is ghosted for those)

I added an entry in ContextMenus which ejects CD0 or CD1. The menu entry is
named accordingly
(EjectCD0 when you click on CD0 or EjectCD1 when you click on CD1) 

  !!!You'll need Eject.os4 in your path; get it from www.os4depot.net!!!!

Quit ContextMenus from Exchange
run the install script
restart ContextMenus


Quit ContextMenus from Exchange
copy the scripts to s:shell/
copy the ContextMenus.cfg to Envarc: and ENV:
restart ContextMenus


0.6  (03-mar-2008) Install script; fortgot to include NewShellHere in 0.5 #-/
0.5  "from3:" bug in "OpenParentDrawer" is now gone
  "SelectExe" preselects "Utilities/Multiview" as executable
  "NewShellCurrentDir" is now renamed to "NewShellHere" and the 
  contextmenu.cfg is edited accordingly. Slight change in the
  naming of said entries to match the system style.

0.4  increased version information
  added 2 new scripts
  added EjectCDx to ContextMenus !!!needs eject.os4 (os4depot)!!! 

0.3     a) moved "open with.." below "open"; 
        b) fixed the "Exchange" call.
        c) added french, german,italian locale support in "CreateFile" script
        d) Added check to the Name requester, so if no filename was entered, it

0.2     corrected little error I put in ContextMenus.cfg

0.1  initial release

- Features Requests :-)

        File version: 0.1
        nice...would be nice if you could have a configure file it would read
        associations from!
A:      Thanx for the feedback. Mmh, I'm not shure what you're asking for.. You
  mean for a preselection of programms for "open with.." ?

Hyperion or the author of ContextMenus are allowed to pack the scripts with
or in the contribuition drawer of OS4.

Thanks to

The author of ContextMenus
AlexWe for testing some scripts www.alexwe.de
and of yourse Hyperion for OS4!!
