Texture Path Problem

I'm having an issue loading textures in c++. Specifically, I'm having an issue getting the path to the texture. From what I've read, this code should get me a c string to the path:

CFBundleRef mainBundle;
    CFURLRef textureFile;    
    char texturePath[1024];    

    mainBundle = CFBundleGetMainBundle();
    textureFile = CFBundleCopyResourceURL(mainBundle, CFSTR("placeholder"), CFSTR("tga"), NULL);
    if( textureFile ) {
        CFStringRef str = CFURLCopyFileSystemPath( textureFile, kCFURLPOSIXPathStyle );
        CFStringGetCString( str, texturePath, 1024, kCFStringEncodingASCII );

But it doesn't quite work. The full path is clipped. texturePath is missing the last like 50 characters. The function returns true, which means there was plenty of space in the buffer, so it is not a size issue.

Alternatively, I've tried this, which returns a null pointer.
const char* texturePathPtr = CFStringGetCStringPtr(str, kCFStringEncodingASCII) ;
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

You should use CFURLGetFileSystemRepresentation() and PATH_MAX to size the array ( dunno if that's *the* problem with your code, but it's *a* problem Wink )

CFURLGetFileSystemRepresentation did the trick. Thanks.
