Generate Absolute File Path In Ruby
Pass a string to
File.expand_path to generate the path to that file or directory. Relative paths will reference your current working directory, and paths prepended with
~ will use the owner's home directory.
File.expand_path('example.rb') => "/Users/avogel/My/Working/Directory/example.rb" File.expand_path('~/example.rb') => "/Users/avogel/example.rb"
