I have uploaded the Module Info Task module for Netbeans 5.5 and 6.0 to my NetBeans update center described here.
The Path Tools module installs the following actions:
Copy Paths - Copy the full paths of the files/folder of selected node to the clipboard. This also included the System File System nodes. Each file path is on a line. The lines are separated using the value specified by system property line.separator. For Project nodes the full path of the project directory is copied.
Explore - Launch the OS File Explorer (such as Windows Explorer or Finder or Koquerer or Nautilus) with the path of the file or folder of selected node selected in it. For Project nodes the project directory is selected. The Windows Explorer is used on MS Windows. Finder is used on MacOS. The Nautilus or Konquerer is used on Linux. The FileMgr is used on Solaris.
Shell On Path: Launch the OS shell (such as Command Prompt orXterm or Terminal) with the current directory set to path of the folder or parent path of the file of selected node. For Project nodes the project directory is used. The Command Prompt is used on MS Windows. Terminal.app is used on MacOS (not implemented yet). The Xterm is used on Linux and Solaris (not implemented yet).
Edit - Launch the editor (such as Notepad or Edit or TextPad) with the path of the file or folder of selected node selected in it. For Project nodes the project directory is selected. The Notepad is used on MS Windows.
The commands to launch external programs can be configured using Tools:Options:Miscellaneous:Path Tools panel.
Sources - coming soon.
