mknrndll shortcut for Windows v2.0 (Shailesh Appukuttan)

Accession:154752
This NEURON plug-in would provide a shortcut for compiling .mod files by adding ‘mknrndll’ as an option to mouse right-click context menu. It also avoids having to specify the compile directory by implicitly accepting the folder inside which you right-clicked as the location. See included 'ReadMe.pdf' file for screenshots and more details.

* Bugs / Errors / Queries / Suggestions 
- I have tried to test it on several computers with different versions
  of Windows and NEURON releases. But I could certainly have missed
  something, somewhere. Do let me know if you have any trouble using
  this plug-in.

* Is this plug-in safe? 
The intention behind having the setup as a .hoc file (rather than an
.exe) was to allow the user to check the source code himself - if in
doubt :); Also it seemed right to have a NEURON plug-in written in its
regular file format.
