I used revMacFromUnixPath in my final handler. It not only manages the
slash/colon substitutions but it also knows when to add the volume name.
Just for the record, here are the handlers I ended up with for use in OS
X. The first one is similar to Ken Ray's posting, but I changed it
slightly since not all valid files start with the word "file". This
version catches textclippings and other types of OS X files that don't
return with the word "file" attached:
-- get a list of all OS X files in a folder
function getFiles pFolder
put revMacFromUnixPath(pFolder) into pFolder
put "tell application" && quote & "Finder" & quote & cr & "files of
&& quote & pFolder & quote & cr & "end tell" into tScript
do tScript as "applescript"
put the result into tFiles
replace comma with cr in tFiles
repeat for each line l in tFiles
get the number of words in char 1 to offset(quote,l) of l
put word it of l & cr after tList
replace quote with empty in tList
-- see if a file path is a valid OS X document file:
function isDocument pPath
set the itemdel to slash
put last item of pPath into tDoc
put revMacFromUnixPath(item 1 to -2 of pPath) into tFolder
put "tell application" && quote & "Finder" & quote & cr & "item" \
&& quote & tDoc "e && "of folder" &"e& tFolder & quote &
cr & "end tell" into tScript
do tScript as applescript
return word 1 of the result = "document"
