Is there a way to get the path/filename in standard unix format on a Mac?

    If I send 'path' to 'thispatcher', I get a result back that has a drive and remaining path separated with a colon. I need to use regular expressions to convert from (say) Drive2:/foo/bar to /Volumes/Drive2/foo/bar
    I don't particularly like that solution.
