FilledSmallSquare ToFileName[, , ... , name] assembles a full file name from a hierarchy of directory names.

FilledSmallSquare ToFileName[, , ... ] assembles a single directory name from a hierarchy of directory names.

FilledSmallSquare ToFileName works differently on different computer systems.

FilledSmallSquare ToFileName just creates a file name; it does not actually search for the file specified.
