Returns OK or error.


Sets whether comment links are enabled.
If enabled, the plugin will scan comments in script lines for URLs and add a little arrow with earth icon on the right. Once clicked, the URL is opened in the default browser.

Works for http://, https://, mailto: and fmp:// URLs. Text before/after is ignored if there is at least a space between. Invalid URLs are ignored, e.g. with non URL component encoded accent characters.

When the URL starts with "fmp://$/?", we insert the current file name as file name before the ?.

In version 13.5 we added goto: and script: URL support. Goto can have a line number or the keyword start or end to jump to the start of the script or the end. The script: URL contains the perfect encoded script name.


Sample Script with links:

# There is a link in the next line:
# ➜🌍 
# There can be text before the link and text behind ➜🌍 
# other URLs with fmp://test work, too. ➜🌍 
# or email links with mailto prefix: mailto:test@test.test ➜🌍
