How to handle a LSAH in user entered filename on mobile?

Not sure about Mobile, but I was under the impression that Livecode handled path conversion internally if forward slashes were used. There are also path conversion functions. I usually check the platform, then do some basic checks for formatting and pop an error if invalid. I also filter for valid characters, and if the source string doesn't match the result, I pop an error.
