Hi Nicolai,

    I'm a bit concerned that this is creating drift with the "official" Cog source base at http://www.squeakvm.org/svn/squeak/branches/Cog.  Long filename support for win32 was recently added by Marcel Taumel in May of this year.  Are you tracking that?  How can we keep the sources harmonized?

Ok, I removed all of my code again and merged with sqWin32Directory.c and sqWin32FilePrims.c from the official cog source.
I left only pharos additions for the fileattributes (posixpermissions) this should make it easier to merge which the
squeak vm main branch (wrapped with pharo vm ifdefs).

github branch: https://github.com/nicolaihess/pharo-vm/tree/harmonize_win_file_plugin
I'll create a push request.

For those who had problems with pharo on windows and github based repositories,
I built a windows vm with support for long paths:


For browsing directories with large paths (FileList or Inspect),
you may need one additional change in the image (But I am not really sure about that) :

    super initialize.
    maxFileNameLength := Smalltalk vm maxFilenameLength ifNil: [ 32767 ].

please test and give feedback.

This wasn't as easy as I thought, and I had to make some more changes
for the file permissions (the stat-functions don't work for files with long paths).
Please test other file/folder operations.


best, Eliot
