Associate file type with IDL procedure?


I've written a fairly extensive widget-based data analysis program in IDL
5.4 under NT 4. It would be really useful to be able to associate the data
file extension (eg .b00) with my program. Double clicking the file in
explorer would launch IDL and compile, then run, the main procedure
(custard.pro), with a command line variable containing the data filename.

Everything I've tried results in the .pro file being opened in the editor.
Does anyone have any ideas, or is this just wishful thinking?
