Python has some nice features for working with paths: http://docs.python.org/lib/module-os.path.html
Does anybody know of any C/C++ functions, techniques or libraries to do something similar?
For example, if I'm passed a path on the commandline as such:
x = "~/mystuff/../myfile.txt"
In python I could get the absolute path as such:
os.path.abspath( os.path.expanduser( x ) )
would return the following for a user called fred:
Any suggestions for an easy way to accomplish something similar in C/C++?
