For Mac OS 9
This app works with: SheepShaver,

Long Info CMM is a Contextual Menu Module designed to extend the Finder of Mac OS 9.x.
While Mac OS X can finally use the really long (up to 255 characters!) file names of the HFS+ file system (or Extended Format, as Apple calls it sometimes), the users of Mac OS 9.x are stuck with the old 31 character limit.
Not only can they just see a shortened version of the file name, there is no way for them to see the complete name, or even change it.
Until now!

Thanks mtb, for sending this by email!

I just learnt of the term "CMM". Then suddenly BOOM, a path to a treasure trove suddenly opens up, and I come across this, as well as Cut+Copy+Paste and a lot else...

I'm very hopeful this CMM will do its job well! I'll get to try it tomorrow, hopefully. Many thanks for this!
