make_absolute_filename man page

make_absolute_filename — Makes an absolute filename from a path and relative filename. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

char *make_absolute_filename(char *dest, const char *path, const char *filename, int size);


Makes an absolute filename from an absolute path and a relative filename, storing at most `size' bytes into the `dest' buffer. This is like calling replace_filename() and then canonicalize_filename(). Example:

char buf[256];
make_absolute_filename(buf, "/usr/games/",
                       "../temp.txt", sizeof(buf));
/* This would create /usr/temp.txt */

Return Value

Returns a copy of the `dest' parameter.
