Additional Comments

Use the longFilePath function to get the long equivalent of a short file path passed from the command line.

Parameters:

The filePath is the location and name of the file or folder whose long equivalent you want. If you specify a name but not a location, Revolution assumes the file or folder is in the defaultFolder.

Value:

The longFilePath function returns a file path.

Comments:

The longFilePath function transforms the filePath without looking for the file, so it returns a value even if the filePath does not exist.

On Mac OS, OS X, or Unix systems, the longFilePath function simply returns the filePath without changing it.
