Constant describing support for long filenames.


Source position: sysunixh.inc line 30

const LFNSupport = True;


LFNSupport determines whether the current OS supports long file names, i.e. filenames that are not of the form 8.3 as on ancient DOS systems. If the value of this constant is True then long filenames are supported. If it is false, then not.

This constant is part of a set of constants that describe the OS characteristics. These constants should be used instead of hardcoding OS characteristics.
