That is what the lazarus.cfg file is for.
Instead of supplying the parameters fer --pcp, you put them into the cfg
lazarus.exe, when started, looks for a lazarus.cfg file in the same
folder as the exe. If found it adds the content to its command line
params. (one per line).
so if you have
c:\lazarus installation of 1.6, should use config in the default location
c:\laz_trunk needs different config
then you add
with the --pcp param you need.
And with that you can start c:\laz_trunk\lazarus.exe anyway you want, it
will use the pcp given in the cfg file.
