Several years ago I wrote a long filename driver for dos written in `djasm'
that includes case sensitivity (I was fed up with win95's case insensitivity
and dos' lack of long filenames:). I believe it was working ok for fat16,
though I'm not sure if I tested with fat12. Never got to test fat32 writes.
One word of warning: (by default?) the short file names tend to be rather

All that said, if somebody's willing to take it over (I haven't had the
time/motivation to work on it for a long time), I'm very happy to donate my
driver code (probably GPL, but that's negotiable). Note: it might not build at
the moment due to me having customized djasm and though most of my changes
have been merged into djgpp, I'm not sure just what went in and what got
modified on the way.

Leave others their otherness. -- Aratak
