Use the shortFilePath function to obtain the equivalent of a file path in short format for use in situations that require it.

Parameters:

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

Value:

The shortFilePath function returns a file path.

Comments:

The shortFilePath 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 shortFilePath simply returns the filePath without changing it.
