/As long as you use the name exactly as returned by the system, it references the full long file name/

Just want to add some caveats to that. It references the specific i><file/, not necessarily name. Because of the way the name is constructed...

..two files with the same long name will have different short names (since they have different inode numbers)

..changing a file's long name could still result in the same short name (if the change is far enough in the name), or

..changing the file's long name could produce a different short name (if the change is near the beginning of the name
