Use the aliasReference function to perform an operation on a file after the user has selected an alias, symbolic link, or shortcut to the file.

Parameters:

The aliasPath is the location and name of the alias whose referenced file or folder you want to get. If you specify a name but not a location, Revolution assumes the file is in the defaultFolder.

Value:

The aliasReference function returns the name and location of a file or folder.

Comments:

If the aliasPath does not exist, the aliasReference function returns empty and the result is set to "can't get".
