I needed to parse and reformat a FileMaker-formatted absolute file path into an AppleScript one. Since I'm novice to FileMaker, the only way I found to accomplish that was via a FM Script, although I tried to (and believe it is possible to) use a Custom Function to do the task. It took me about 9 minutes to script it in FileMaker 9.0v3. If you have any ideas or improvements, feel free to use them.
