C.3 BORLAND AND FILE LONG NAMES

I develop under C3°° 1992 of Borland. Don't ask why. I know it, It runs faster than later version under Win/Dos and is perfectly compatible with Version 5.. but is easier to port around. Now I have a problem: the long file names. I tried a few parameter changes, etc.. I know there is a soure code of the functions fopen, mkdir, etc... I need where I could probably modify the size of the file name filed. Or is there another possibility.  Thx for the help.

You could try replaing the libraries with more modern ones thus you would not need to change the code. I'm a little doubtful about modifing the code because I don't think it is quite as simple as storing a longer string.

I've not looked into how the long file names are stored but I seem to recall the support for the truncated filesname (eg myfilen~.xxx ) requires some skulduggary.

I cetainly need to change libraries and includes files where files
related functions are dealt with. Either in modifyng the code or
in finding new ones acceptable by BC3++. I need to be told
from experience how to do it. Even C5 deals with DOS with
short names as far as I realise.
