  Context menu open file v. copy to command line (Message 1 to 3 of 3)

If I have a command line with a quoted string, the editor interprets the line as
an #include directive.  For example, if I have

   //cmd:-a declare=Pass=1 +rf"foo.rad" +rfo
   //cmd:+a declare=Pass=2 +rf"foo.rad" +rfi

instead of copying line to the command field, the editor opens the foo.rad file.

This happens in POV-Ray 3.6.2 and 3.7.

My OS is the infinitely exasperating Windows 7 Ultimate.

Additional information:

If I right-click to the right of the quoted string, it copies to the line to the
command field.  If I right-click on or to the left of the quoted string, it
opens foo.rad.

I don't know if it is intentional, but I rather like it. I had not yet 
discovered that clicking to the right of a line containing a quoted 
string would copy to the command line as usual. Thanks for the tip.
