FS_PATHINFO - Query/Set a File's Information
Returns information for a specific path or file.
int far pascal FS_PATHINFO(flag, pcdfsi, pcdfsd, pName, iCurDirEnd, level,
unsigned short flag;
struct cdfsi far * pcdfsi;
struct cdfsd far * pcdfsd;
char far * pName;
unsigned short iCurDirEnd;
unsigned short level;
char far * pData;
unsigned short cbData;
flag indicates retrieval or setting of information.
flag == 0x0000 indicates retrieving information
flag == 0x0001 indicates setting information on the media
flag == 0x0010 indicates that the information being set must be
written-through onto the disk before returning. This bit is never set when
All other values are reserved.
pcdfsi is a pointer the file-system-independent working directory
pcdfsd is a pointer to the file-system-dependent working directory
pName is a pointer to the ASCIIZ name of the file or directory for which
information is to be retrieved or set.
The FSD does not need to verify this pointer.
iCurDirEnd is the index of the end of the current directory in pName.
This is used to optimize FSD path processing. If iCurDirEnd == -1, there
is no current directory relevant to the name text, that is a device.
level is the information level to be returned.
Level selects among a series of data structures to be returned or set.
pData is the address of the application data area.
Addressing of this data area is not validated by the kernel (see
FSH_PROBEBUF ). When retrieval (flag == 0) is specified, the FSD places
the information into the buffer. When outputting information to a file
(flag == 1), the FSD retrieves that data from the application buffer.
cbData is the length of the application data area.
For flag == 0, this is the length of the data the application wishes to
retrieve. If there is not enough room for the entire level of data to be
returned, the FSD returns a BUFFER OVERFLOW error. For flag == 1, this is
the length of data to be applied to the file.

Version 2 .0 Control Program Programming Reference for details on
The FSD will not be called for DosQPathInfo level 5.
FSDs that are case-preserving (like HPFS) can decide to accept level 7
requests. A level 7 DosQueryPathInfo request asks the FSD to fill the
pData buffer with the case-preserved path and filename of the
path/filename passed in pName. Routing of level 7 requests will be
determined by the kernel by checking the LV7 bit in a FSD's attribute
