widget full path name?

Sorry if this is a newbie question.

Given a widget, I need the full pathname of the widget.
For example,

STk> w
#[Tk-command .draw.modes.pointer]

I need the full pathname of w as a string, that is ".draw.modes.pointer".

STk>(winfo 'name w)

only gives the name within the parent.

I could write something which follows the parents upward to
build the full pathname, but surely there is simple command
which yields it, given the widget.
