in thread Shorten windows paths too long

There is a way to work around with paths longer than 260 chars: http://www.foken.de/alexander/projekte/windows/deepcopy.html#Algorithm.

    Thank you for the suggestion, it looks like something that would do the trick. I will likely have to give blood before they'll allow me to download it unfortunately.

    Governments are fussy that way.

      You can also try the Long Path Tool for solving this type of problems.

[james28909]: ok
[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
