Retrieve the Full and Short Pathnames with a Batch File

This code comes in handy when you've run out of storage in the %PATH% environment variable. Save the following code as Pathname.bat in C:\winnt:

@echo off
if not exist %1 echo %1 - no such file or directory exists&goto :EOF
echo.
echo    Full PathName  : %1
echo.
echo    Short PathName : %~s1
echo.
echo.
Next, execute the file test.bat in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio. The result will be the full PathName:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio"
And the Short PathName:

C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3
