    Directory string conversion.

    In my program, I have a directory string:
    C:\\test\\media\\..\\img\\1.bmp

    Now, my problem is that I need to have the absolute directory from the above, pointing to C:\\test\\img\\1.bmp
    What's the fastest way to convert it?

    Some stdlib.h implementations have _fullpath().

    Or you can use the Win32 API function GetFullPathName()
