fat16 LIB - short filename

+1 vote
Hello there,
I wonder if is possible to create files with filenames longer than short file name format (8.3) by using the FAT.LIB.

Thank you in advance

No, the FAT library does not include long filename support.

Thank you very much for your answer,

Is there any other library that i could use to create long filenames?

Best Regards

I'm not aware of anything you could use on the Rabbit to support long filenames on FAT volumes.  I believe it would require a significant effort to do so, and it's common for embedded devices to only handle the 8.3 filenames.
