Getting Information From Alias RecordsTo retrieve information from an alias record without actually resolving the record, call the
GetAliasInfofunction. You can use
GetAliasInfoto retrieve the name of the target, the names of the target's parent directories, the name of the target's volume, or, in the case of an AppleShare volume, its zone or server name.
The information returned by
GetAliasInfomight be stale.
GetAliasInforeads the information stored in the alias record, which might have changed since the creation of the record. Because it doesn't resolve the alias record,
GetAliasInfois most useful for providing information quickly.
