Re: Use Different Editor

Using tilde_expand ('~\.octaverc') gave me a location of C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin\My Documents\NetBeansProjects.  However, there was no octaverc file in that directory.
I did a search of my computer and found the directory I needed at C:\Program Files\Octave\share\octave\site\m\startup.  I added "edit editor "C:\\Program Files\\Notepad++\\notepad++.exe %s"" to the octaverc file there.  I still would prefer to modify the system octaverc file because octave still says at startup that "edit" opens SciTE, when I've obviosly changed that.
I suppose I could install Octave without installing SciTE.  Then I wouldn't get that message.

To know the exact location of your own startup file, type the
following at octave prompt:

tilde_expand ('~\.octaverc')
