Mac filenames with Mac-specific characters


G

Guest

Hi,

I have some file names created on a Mac which have characters which the user is disallowed from entering under Windows. I copy them to a Windows 2000 server and try to read them in programmatically using FindNextFile(). This returns a file name with the question mark character substituted for the original character. However, when the file is viewed on a Mac the proper characters appear (e.g. /|\*"<>). Does anybody know where the original file name is stored and how I can get at it using the Windows API?

Use Unicode.
