Thank you for your contribution. This upload is now available as

I have made an exception and accepted this submission even if it
only contains the unit (but fortunately in a source format).

The Garbo's Valued Uploaders,

As you probably know we are particularly interested in Turbo Pascal
related submissions. One category of these submissions are the
various authors' TPU units.

If you make such a submission to Garbo, please include a TEST.PAS or
a similar program that demonstrates the usage of your unit. I do not
require revealing your source code, but I do require a source code
test file before I consider a TPU unit submission. This is both for
user-friendliness and for easier to be able to verify that your unit
compiles and works.

; This is a unit to support long filenames in Win95 and WinNT, for use
; in ordinary 16-bit programs in Turbo Pascal 6.0+ and Turbo Pascal for
; Windows 1.5. The unit makes use of ordinary FILE/TEXT variables, and
; the usual TP I/O routines can either be used as/is or replaced by
; the unit's (almost) drop-in replacements. If used on a non-LFN system,
; NATLFN routines transparently switch to the old FAT16 format with no
; user or programmer intervention.
