NAME

       make_absolute_filename  -  Makes  an  absolute filename from a path and relative filename.
       Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       char *make_absolute_filename(char *dest, const  char  *path,  const  char  *filename,  int
       size);

DESCRIPTION

       Makes  an absolute filename from an absolute path and a relative filename, storing at most
       `size' bytes into the `dest' buffer. This is  like  calling  replace_filename()  and  then
       canonicalize_filename(). Example:

          char buf[256];
          ...
          make_absolute_filename(buf, "/usr/games/",
                                 "../temp.txt", sizeof(buf));
          /* This would create /usr/temp.txt */

RETURN VALUE

       Returns a copy of the `dest' parameter.
