What do you mean by local file path? Do you mean Macintosh-type path,
POSIX-type path, or URI?

What are you trying to accomplish?

Subject: converting local path to unc path


Could anyone help me with this issue: I am trying to convert a local
file path to an UNC path, on a Mac.  I can't seem to find a Macintosh
system call to do this, so I thought there might be a samba call, as
samba is the one serving the file in the end.  Of course, if there is
such a call, I don't really know if I could access it if it is not
available in any library.  Both technically and legally.  So any ideas
on that would be useful as well ;-)
