in general yes but I assume you ask if this is a builtin feature, if so, no there isn’t
such a function.
What you normally do in such cases is to use the run menu with an external tool that can be
executed as program directly or via cmd shell and providing the file as a parameter, like
cmd /K python "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"
npp replaces automatically $(FULL_CURRENT_PATH) with the full path of the
currently opened (and saved) document.
In your case it COULD be that this way still works but it either needs to be wrapped
in a bat file, when using run menu or copy and paste when using NppExec plugin
mode COM8 BAUD=115200 PARITY=... DATA=... copy $(FULL_CURRENT_PATH) \\.\COM8
Note, when using a batch file you cannot use $(FULL_CURRENT_PATH) inside the batch
but something like $1 as far as I remember.
