toAbsolutePath -- the absolute path version of a file name



i1 : toAbsolutePath "a/b.m2"

o1 = /tmp/tmp.ITU148GERD/M2-1.22/M2/BUILD/doug/Macaulay2/packages/

Paths of the form foo/x/../bar, are shortened to foo/bar without checking the file system to see whether x is a symbolic link. For the other behavior, see realpath.
