Hello everybody,

What is the best way to convert relative path to absolute path?

I came up to

NSString * AbsolutePath(NSString * path)
    if ( ! [path isAbsolutePath] )
        NSFileManager * fmgr = [NSFileManager defaultManager];
        NSString * dir = [fmgr currentDirectoryPath];
        NSArray * arr = [NSArray arrayWithObjects: dir, path, nil];
path = [[NSString pathWithComponents: arr] stringByStandardizingPath];

    return path;

The shortest is probably ...

if ([path isAbsolutePath] == NO)
path = [[[NSFileManager defaultManager] currentDirectoryPath] stringByAppendingPathComponent: path];

You can standardize it too if that's important.
