|lfn ~sigh~ when, o lord, when, will these not be biting us on the ass. Thankyou, Bill.|
(edit: apologies to N4ru if it looked like i was referring to your post in the above. i was referring to long filenames (with spaces), not you or your query! reading it today it looks that way so i wanted to clarify my stupid remarks.
lfn: Long File Name, ie: open season to wreck any/all code that tries to be logical and consistant.
ever wondered why dir /b only gives lfn, and dir /x gives shortnames but also all the crap? he MADE his programmers
make these two options mutually exclusive.
planned obsolescence, engineered self-destruction, punishment for being "nonmainstream". All so we can have "spaces" in our filenames. what was wrong with _? oh well... sorry.
yes, put quotes around it (var. that is filename). hopefully that fixes and lets Bill rest comfortably. ;)
ps, i hope the quotes made it work.
