  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

The new GET functions for paths are very useful in FMPv8 but when using shell scripts the name of the hard drive needs to be removed to get the proper UNIX path. This custom function trims off the leading item in the filepath returned by the GET function
