Retrieve the Full and Short Pathnames with a Batch File

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 offif not exist %1 echo %1 - no such file or directory exists&goto :EOFecho.echo    Full PathName  : %1echo.echo    Short PathName : %~s1echo.echo.

Next, execute the file test.bat in C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio. The result will be the full PathName:

"C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio"

And the Short PathName:

C:PROGRA~1MICROS~3
