I'm searching for programmer's editor or its plugin which can create, discover, open and save NTFS alternate data streams (ADS) using the user interface.
Currently I am using Notepad++ which can work with ADS if they are open from command line:
So in this example I can keep SQL query which led to creation of content of the CSV file in the same CSV file. This is fine to maintain using the command line. But when I am in Notepad++ user interface, I cannot discover that
sql_query ADS attached nor I can use file name
D:\data\mydata.csv:sql_query in file open dialog.
Maybe some plugin can add the discovery into Notepad++ or is there some different programmer's editor (preferably free) which can work with ADS (discovery, opening, editing, saving)?
Example – I expect to be presented with the following file list:
(This is what command line
dir /R does.) From this list, I can pick either main or alternate data stream to open in the editor.
