abspath(path::AbstractString) -> AbstractString

Convert a path to an absolute path by adding the current directory if necessary.


julia> abspath("file.txt")

This example converts the relative path "file.txt" to an absolute path by adding the current directory.

julia> abspath("../folder/file.txt")

In this example, the relative path "../folder/file.txt" is converted to an absolute path by adding the current directory.

julia> abspath("/Users/username/file.txt")

When an absolute path is provided, the abspath function returns the same path without modification.

Common mistake example:

julia> abspath("non_existent/file.txt")

In this example, the provided path "non_existent/file.txt" is not a valid path, but abspath still returns an absolute path. It's important to note that abspath does not check if the path exists or is valid. It simply converts the given path to an absolute path.
