Doesn't handle special characters well
Authored by: ClassicUser on Oct 24, '08 09:09:22PM

Thanks for the heads-up on this new addition to the AppleScript dictionary, balefrost!

Unfortunately, though, the "POSIX path of " command doesn't handle several special characters well. For example, spaces are NOT delimited - making the resulting path nearly useless (unless the user were to manually delimit within quotes, for example).

As such, I still prefer the original script, with its manual recreation of this functionality. Kudos (again) to James for this very-useful addition - which I've added as a contextual menu item to ensure direct access.
