gets long path name


longpath = getlongpathname(shortpath)
[longpath, bOK] = getlongpathname(shortpath)



a character string or matrix of strings: the short path.


a character string or matrix of strings: the long path.


a boolean or a matrix of boolean: %T if path has been converted else %F.


The getlongpathname primitive converts the specified path shortpath to its long form. If no long path is found, this primitive returns the specified name.

Note: If the path cannot be converted (bOK is %F) and in particular if the operating system is not Windows, the returned long path is identical to the input short path.
