1. What is Get File Path?
You want to be able with a single drag and drop or a single click to get or copy in the clipboard the path of a file or a folder? You don't want to send full files to your colleagues by email but just a link in order to work on the same documents and not on copies?
Then Get File Path is what you need!

Get File Path allows you to copy to the clipboard the path of a file or folder dropped on it, after automatic application of various programmable transformations.
- It works with any kind of file (applications, documents, folders, ...).
- It uses pattern matching to copy and transform the name, and/or the path, and/or the parent folder path of the dropped file.
- It can automatically insert other characters and tags during the copy, which is useful to create links for example.
- It remembers the last pattern used.
- It can automatically resolve aliases (files and paths).
- It can use Unix paths as well as Mac paths.
- It can copy the result to the clipboard or to an edit field.
- It can automatically replace blank spaces by %20 in the paths.
- It can automatically quit afterwards.
- It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use.
- It is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and many other languages.

Version 8.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with El Capitan and Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).

No particular installation is required. Once you've downloaded the ".dmg" package from our website, it should uncompress automatically (in your "Downloads" folder or on your Desktop). If it does not, then you can double-click on it to uncompress it.
Then you just have to move the created folder into your "Applications" folder (or any other location) and double-click on the Application to launch it.

Particular case of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra:

Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.11 El Capitan and 10.12 Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website).

4. How to uninstall it?
There should be no reason to do this. ;-)
However, if you really want, then you just have to throw the Application into the trash, and that's all.

5. How to use it?
You can use the application by dragging and dropping files or folders on its icon in the Finder or in the Dock, by dragging and dropping files or folders on its window when it is already launched, or by sending files or folders to it with the "Open with..." contextual menu in the Finder.

The "Pattern" edit field:
It allows you to build your own pattern that will be applied to transform the path of the file or the folder dropped on the application.

The "Result" edit field:
It shows you the result of the transformation, which can be automatically copied to the clipboard and consequently can be pasted in any document, such as an email.

The "Resolve aliases" check box:
It allows you to automatically resolve aliases (files and paths).

The "Use Unix path instead of Mac path" check box:
It allows you to use Unix paths instead of Mac paths.

The "Copy result to clipboard afterwards" check box:
It allows you to automatically copy the result of the transformation to the clipboard.

The "Quit application afterwards" check box:
It makes the application automatically quit when the transformation and copy are done.

The best way to use the application is to select all check boxes and to drag and drop files or folders on its icon in the Dock. Then your clipboard contains the transformed path which can be immediately pasted in an email for example. It allows you to save a lot of time and allows you to work on shared documents with your colleagues for example.
