A quick question (I hope):   is there a straightforward way of extracting a filename (pascal string, hopefully) from a CFURLref?     I know how to do this for an FSref but can’t seem to find something similar for CFURLs.   This would help for handling double-clicked or drag-and-drop files.

toolbox fn CFURLCopyLastPathComponent( CFURLRef url ) = CFStringRef


toolbox fn CFStringGetPascalString( CFStringRef theString, pointer buffer, CFIndex bufferSize, CFStringEncoding encoding ) = Boolean

if necessary.
