How to change Absolute path to Relative path


Hello,

I have a doubt:-

---------------------
Current script:-

################################################################################################
prefix=user@my-server:
find . -depth -type d -name .git -printf '%h\0' | while read -d "" path ; do (
cd "$path" || exit $?
name="`basename "$path"`"
echo <command> "$prefix$PWD.git"
) done
#################################################################################################
Output:-
<command> user@my-server:/home/git/mirror/android/adb/OpenWnn.git
<command> user@my-server:/home/git/mirror/android/adb/cts.git
<command> user@my-server:/home/git/mirror/android/adb/dalvik.git
<command> user@my-server:/home/git/mirror/android/adb/ndk.git
#################################################################################################

Desired output:-
<command> user@my-server:/android/adb/OpenWnn.git
<command> user@my-server:/mirror/android/adb/cts.git
<command> user@my-server:/android/adb/dalvik.git
<command> user@my-server:/mirror/android/adb/ndk.git

##################################################################################################


How shall i go about changing the absolute path to relative path, so that /home/git/mirror/android/adb/ndk.git
gets converted to /mirror/android/adb/ndk.git

//echo <command> "$prefix$PWD.git" ?? - anything for relative path??

##################################################################################################

Hello,

Please don't double post your question. It'll only confuse both you and us on where the conversation is taking place. Reported since it's a duplicate for this one.

Kind regards,

Eric
