      Yes, not needed.

      There are two "tokens" that will automatically translate to the full
      file name, ^** and ^##. You can read about the difference in the
      section Clip Basics in the ordinary Help file (not Clip Help).

      So... if we call the variable 'url'---
      !Set %url%=^$FileToUrl("^**")$

      >Next, pass the resultant variable to my remote browser choice clip.
      >^!FarClip "Programs:Browser Choice" %variable%

      You must prefix the variable with a circumflex to "use" it, get the
      value out of it.

      ^!FarClip "Programs:Browser Choice" ^%url%

      Hope that works now. ;-o)
