    Question How to judge whether a path is relative or absolute?

    As the title, is there a function in GNU C library?

    It begins with a dot.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
