Is there a function to retrieve the file location (pathname) if only a file alias is known? I only have the file alias via a function available in a "host" program. This function opens the application's data files. I need to determine the path to these files. I don't want to search for files via the File() or fullpath() functions. The only thing I can think of is to use a Display Structure command, then parse the file path name out of that text file. Ugly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
