Written In:
Command line utility that makes it easier to send files to HTML-Kit from a command prompt window / DOS box. Note that this is not a plugin and does not need to be installed in HTML-Kit. Simply run it from a command prompt window.


  • Opens the specified files (with or without full path names) in HTML-Kit,
  • Supports wild cards such as *.html for opening all matching files, and
  • Provides the ability to go to a line number after opening the files (this option can be used to focus in on a specific line when sending files from external applications that pass a file name and a line number).

Usage samples:

  • hkOpen file.htm <!-- opens file.htm from the current directory -->
  • hkOpen a.htm b.htm <!-- opens a.htm and b.htm -->
  • hkOpen c:\mysite\file.htm <!-- opens file.htm from c:\mysite\ -->
  • hkOpen *.htm <!-- opens all *.htm files -->
  • hkOpen /line:50 file.htm <!-- opens file.htm and jumps to line# 50 -->
