Panic over... I found it:
FUNCTION stsLongFilePath pPath
SWITCH (the platform)
CASE "MacOS" -- assumes OS X
put "set tPath to" && quote & pPath & quote & cr & \
"set tPath to (POSIX file tPath) as string" & cr & \
"POSIX path of tPath" into tScript
do tScript as "AppleScript"
return (char 2 to -2 of the result) -- strips quotes
return the longfilepath of pPath
now stored in my trusty "Scripter's Scrapbook"
where I found another, more complex
raw function for this same duty.
