How to create long file names:
1. Create the directory entry with the short file name (eg "Progra~1")
2. In the following directory entries put down the rest of names (eg "m Files", and set all of their attributes, ie FA_RDONLY+FA_HIDDEN+FA_SYSTEM+FA_LABEL+FA_DIREC+FA_ARCH)

In Borland C++ you can use _dos_setattrib() function to do the job.
