Path Extensions 1.0 reviewDownload
This module and attendant modules and classes provide a way for REALbasic 5.
This module and attendant modules and classes provide a way for REALbasic 5.2 to access file paths in a variety of useful and interesting ways under Mac OS X (tested under 10.2.6).
Although paths should be avoided under Mac OS (any version) there are times when it may be useful to have them. These include use of the shell class, display to the user, and passing to AppleScript. This module extends the REALbasic FolderItem class by providing a number of methods to extract the path information.
Path Extensions is a REALbasic snippet which allows you to extend the FolderItem built-in class with the ability to get POSIX-compliant paths, better HFS paths, a windows path and file URLs.
REALbasic 5 or later.
