Need help in displaying the relative path


Hi. I was wondering if somebody can help me on this. I am writing a c program that finds a file and display its relative path if the file is found... I am not sure how I going to display the relative path.. Any suggestions? Thx

int
main (int argc, char * argv[])
{

int fileDesc; /* File Descriptor */
struct stat buf; /* Stat Struct */

if ((fileDesc = open(argv[1], O_RDONLY)) < 0)
{
printf ("%s: %s -- File does not exist.\n",argv[0], argv[1]);
return(1);
}

fstat (fileDesc, & buf);

printf ("filename : %s \n", argv[1]);
printf ("relative path : \n");
printf ("Protection Mode : %o ", buf.st_mode);
printf ("Tot size : %ld\n", buf.st_size);

close (fileDesc);
return (0);

}

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread is being closed because it is a duplicate.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=566798


In this case I've closed the original because the dupe was in the more suitable
forum and already had a relevant answer. Please re-visit the rules you agreed to.



Cheers,
Tink
