FAQ.folderitem.absolutepath is limited to 255 chars. How can I get longer ones?

Answer: Paths on a Mac are not unique, so use them only to display them to the user.
Function AbsolutePath(f as FolderItem) As String
Dim s as string
Dim nf as FolderItem
nf = f
s = ""
while nf<>nil
s = nf.name + ":" + s
nf = nf.parent
Return s
End Function
