Unicode file names

Hi Richard,

There is no workaround. This simply doesn't work. Let's hope that the unicode overhaul in 4.5 changes this.

However, you can use AppleScript or VBScript and create a complete parallel file handling system. E.g. use AppleScript to read data from a file and then pass on the data to LiveCode. I started this, but never got to finish it.

Best regards,
