Vfp Unc

Namespace: WIN_COM_API
VFP supports UNC names ( \\servername\sharename\path\path\path\file.ext ) in many ways:

USE \\server\share\path\table.dbf

However, I never tried this before, but this actually works:

CD \\Server\Share\Path\Path\Path

Now, these functions return the following:

SET('DEFAULT') = "\\server\share"
CURDIR() = "\path\path\path\"

However, if you try to start a DOS command shell now, it won't start, because the default drive is invalid.

So, VFP really supports UNC!
