I've been digging a little and I believe the exec command is run as a key-binding like this:

Code: Select all
{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+y"], "command": "exec", "args": {"cmd": ["C:\\windows\\system32\\notepad.exe", "$file"]} }

But it doesn't seem to parse $file (or $file_path or $file_name).

So, alternatively, try creating a Build like this (Tools menu, Build System, New Build System..)

Code: Select all
    "cmd": ["C:\\Users\\Andrew\\AppData\\Local\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe", "$file"]

and just change the first part to refer to the app you want to use. (This example is for Windows). But someone might contribute with more precise info ;)
