      I believe so.

      From google, I searched "dos short name tip", and found a good one.

      It is for win95, but I believe all windows OSes shares the same convention,
      and every filename for windows has a one-to-one match to DOS short name.

      Also, from cygwin, I can have filename using cygpath: such as

      Usage: cygpath (-d|-m|-u|-w|-t TYPE) [-c HANDLE] [-f FILE] [options] NAME
      cygpath [-ADHPSW]
      Output type options:
      -d, --dos print DOS (short) form of NAME (C:\PROGRA~1\)
      -m, --mixed like --windows, but with regular slashes (C:/WINNT)
      -u, --unix (default) print Unix form of NAME
      -w, --windows print Windows form of NAME (C:\WINNT)
      -t, --type TYPE print TYPE form: 'dos', 'mixed', 'unix', or
      Path conversion options:
      -a, --absolute output absolute path
      -l, --long-name print Windows long form of NAME (with -w, -m only)
      -p, --path NAME is a PATH list (i.e., '/bin:/usr/bin')
      -s, --short-name print DOS (short) form of NAME (with -w, -m only)
      System information:
      -A, --allusers use `All Users' instead of current user for -D, -P
      -D, --desktop output `Desktop' directory and exit
      -H, --homeroot output `Profiles' directory (home root) and exit
      -P, --smprograms output Start Menu `Programs' directory and exit
      -S, --sysdir output system directory and exit
      -W, --windir output `Windows' directory and exit
