convert Windows-style path names to NuTCRACKER Platform-style path names 

Tk Built-In Commands


nutpath "path"

nutpath [pwd]

nutpath "path"


The nutpath command converts a Windows-style path name with forward slashes to a NuTCRACKER Platform-style path name (for example, with the drive letter specified as /D=/ rather than D:/).

The buffer that nutpath points to should be at least as large as the buffer that the specified path name points to. Buffers should be allocated with PATH_MAX+1 characters. By default, the output is the present working directory followed by the specified path. For example, if the present working directory is E:/TCL/UNIX, the command line:

nutpath xyz

would produce the following output:



If successful, nutpath returns TCL_OK. On failure, it returns TCL_ERROR and displays an error message.
