Opendatabase statement doesn't work with alias files

Issue #951 resolved
Jim Rea repo owner created an issue

This probably means that any function that references a file won’t work with an alias, for example fileload(. Maybe there should be a function that resolves an alias to the actual path?

    Greatly improved support for alias files, including new function aliaspath( that returns the target of an alias. Fixes issue #951.

    The opendatabase and opensecret statements now properly handle alias files, so do the filecatalog(, filedate(, filedisplayname(, fileinfo(, fileload(, fileloadpartial(, filesize(, filesuperdate(, filetime(, filetypecreator( and listfiles( function. Various places where images may be specified by path now also support alias files - alertmodal, alertsheet, dragtext, Image Display objects and Rich Text.
