Not sure if this is the correct group, but I'm having problems getting a
file handle using NWAllocTemporaryDirectoryHandle API and and retrieving
rights from files uaing NWIntScanExtendedInfo and
NWGetObjectEffectiveRights. These routines need directory names and file
names converted into DOS8.3 format and occasionally these conversions give
a colon somewhere in the path, which seems to throw these routines.
Sometimes I can get around the problem by using the short directory name
and the long (non DOS8.3) file name but I'm sure there's a better way. Any
help greatly appreciated
