    Absolute path C

    Hello,

    Do anybody know, how could I get an absolute path? I tried this, but I have strange results...

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <unistd.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv) {
        char the_path[256];
    
        getcwd(the_path, 255);
        strcat(the_path, "/");
        strcat(the_path, argv[0]);
    
        printf("%s\n", the_path);
    
        return 0;
    }
