filename. The search in documents does exactly what I would like to
do with my tool. It uses the buffer name (e.g. "NoName1" in the
output). When configuring a tool, there's no way to get the name for
an unsaved file. If the $FileName argument is used, it prompts to
save the file (which I often don't want to do) if it has never been saved.
