Yes, that was the file that prompted my question.
No, DOS didn't have that problem IIRC, although its 8.3 scheme was
certainly limiting enough.
I was particularly worried about older DEC, IBM, and UNISYS mainframe
operating systems, and some of the very small modern platforms (Palm, etc.)
Anyone familiar with those system's filename requirements?
