NAME

       fnqualify - qualify a filename

SYNOPSIS

       #include <publib.h>

       size_t fnqualify(char *result, const char *path, size_t max);

DESCRIPTION

       fname_qualify  qualifies a filename.  This means that if the input name is not an absolute
       name (i.e. starts from the root  directory,  e.g.  is  foo,  not  /tmp/foo),  the  current
       directory will be prepended to it.  Also, tilde conversion is done: if the filename begins
       with a tilde (~), the tilde is replaced with the home directory of the  user,  and  if  it
       begins with a tilde and a username, both are replaced with the home directory of the given
       user.

       Simplifications like replacing /./ with /, and /foo/../bar with /bar are not done  because
       of problems with symbolic links.

RETURNS

       The  function  returns  -1  if  there  was  some error, or the total size of the full name
       otherwise.  The return value may be greater than  the  maximum  size  given  by  the  last
       argument; only as much as allowed by that is actually written, though.
