Hi Swoffa,

Would it be possible to set/overwrite env/path settings outside, i.e. via the prefs file?
On my work machine all my C64 related stuff lives in the mountable virtual drive and I need to overwrite these paths somehow. Cheers!

        "env" : { "CLASSPATH":"$CLASSPATH:/Applications/KickAssembler/KickAss.jar"},
        "path": "$PATH:/Applications/VICE/"

Added kickass_path setting for adding things to path. Env might be fixed later, but you can use the kickass_jar_path setting for the kick assembler jar path (full path to the Kick Assembler jar-file).

There is also setting for Vice, kickass_run_path and kickass_debug_path.

More info (under settings):

Fixed in pr #40

Now environment variables can be added thru the kickass_env setting.
The variables defined will have precedence over other environment variables with the same names.
Example setting:

	"kickass_env": { 
		"MY_ENV_VAR1" : "Goats can fly",
		"MY_ENV_VAR2" : "Brown banana",

Hope it helps!
