target & path
Accessor to the string path. The native version of these strings are not guaranteed to be a usable path to pass to NSPR or the C stdlib. There are problems that affect platforms on which a path does not fully specify a file because two volumes can have the same name (e.g., XP_MAC). This is solved by holding "private", native data in the nsIFile implementation. This native data is lost when you convert to a string.
DO NOT PASS TO USE WITH NSPR OR STDLIB!
target Find out what the symlink points at. Will give error (NS_ERROR_FILE_INVALID_PATH) if not a symlink.
path Find out what the nsIFile points at.
Note that the ACString attributes are returned in the native filesystem charset.
