Long File Names in CMD.EXE

Everytime I try to manipulate files from the DOS promt I get an error if it is a long file name.  I know NT can handle the long file names, but is there a way to use them at the Command Prompt Level?

Simply put the path of the long file name in quotes. ie.

"C:\program files\goofy.exe"
