Function: Returns the absolute path for the file.
Example:
// test absolute path
Dim f As FolderItem = SpecialFolder.Desktop.Child("test.txt")
Dim p As String = f.AbsolutePath

Dim g As FolderItem = NewFolderItemFromAbsolutePathMBS(p)
Dim n As String = g.NativePath

MsgBox p+EndOfLine+n
Notes:
For Xojo we register this function for compatibility to older Xojo and Real Studio versions.
Same as AbsolutePathMBS, but with name AbsolutePath.
On MacOS queries absolute path in MacOS Classic HFS style, but on Windows and Linux just queries native path.
