I've added another small utility to Inkutils that's meant for use in batch files. It returns via an ERRORLEVEL whether a given drive supports long filenames at that time. In the Inkutils tradition, it's been given the condensed name of LFNA (Long File Names Available :). It's 4096 bytes in size and available here. It will be packaged up with Inkutils 1.54 that will be along shortly.
