[REBOL] very long path/filenames

From: D::Weyand::gmx::de at: 5-Dec-2005 14:08

Hi list, does anybody know how to create files with very long pathes? As I have to handle deep directory structures with pathes longer than 255 characters, my script failed to work on Windows as REBOL always uses the absolute path to open such targets. I want to migrate my scripts/data from AmigaOS with SmartFileSystem to WindowsXP. See script example below: long-filename: %.txt insert/dup long-filename "0" 200 close open long-filename long-path: %/ insert/dup long-path "0" 200 make-dir/deep long-path close open join long-path long-filename ** Access Error: Cannot open ....<SNIP> Any ideas for a workaround? Do you know a filesystem for Windows which can handle long pathes/filenames? Thanks for your help and advise. Regards, Dirk -- Lust, ein paar Euro nebenbei zu verdienen? Ohne Kosten, ohne Risiko!
