method rel2abs

Documentation for method rel2abs assembled from the following types:

class IO::Spec::Unix

From IO::Spec::Unix

(IO::Spec::Unix) method rel2abs

Defined as:

method rel2abs(Str() $path, $base = $*CWD --> Str:D)

Returns a string representing $path converted to absolute path, based at $base, which defaults to $*CWD. If $base is not an absolute path, it will be made absolute relative to $*CWD, unless $*CWD and $base are the same.

say $*CWD;                                  # OUTPUT: «"/home/camelia".IO␤»

say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: 'foo';          # OUTPUT: «/home/camelia/foo␤»
say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: './';           # OUTPUT: «/home/camelia␤»
say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: 'foo/../../';   # OUTPUT: «/home/camelia/foo/../..␤»
say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: '/foo/';        # OUTPUT: «/foo␤»

say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: 'foo', 'bar';   # OUTPUT: «/home/camelia/bar/foo␤»
say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: './', '/bar';   # OUTPUT: «/bar␤»
say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: '/foo/', 'bar'; # OUTPUT: «/foo␤»

say IO::Spec::Unix.rel2abs: 'foo/../../', 'bar';
# OUTPUT: «/home/camelia/bar/foo/../..␤»

class IO::Spec::Win32

From IO::Spec::Win32

(IO::Spec::Win32) method rel2abs

Defined as:

method rel2abs(Str() $path, $base = $*CWD --> Str:D)

Returns a string representing $path converted to absolute path, based at $base, which defaults to $*CWD. If $base is not an absolute path, it will be made absolute relative to $*CWD, unless $*CWD and $base are the same.

say $*CWD;                                   # OUTPUT: «"C:\Users\camelia".IO␤»

say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: 'foo';          # OUTPUT: «C:\Users\camelia\foo␤»
say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: './';           # OUTPUT: «C:\Users\camelia␤»
say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: 'foo/../../';   # OUTPUT: «C:\Users\camelia\foo\..\..␤»
say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: '/foo/';        # OUTPUT: «C:\foo␤»

say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: 'foo', 'bar';   # OUTPUT: «C:\Users\camelia\bar\foo␤»
say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: './', '/bar';   # OUTPUT: «\bar␤»
say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: '/foo/', 'bar'; # OUTPUT: «C:\foo␤»

say IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs: 'foo/../../', 'bar';
# OUTPUT: «C:\Users\camelia\bar\foo\..\..␤»

class IO::Spec::Cygwin

From IO::Spec::Cygwin

(IO::Spec::Cygwin) method rel2abs

Defined as:

method rel2abs(|c --> List:D)

Same as IO::Spec::Win32.rel2abs, except replaces backslashes with slashes in the final result.
