NAME

       Tcl_GetCwd, Tcl_Chdir - manipulate the current working directory

SYNOPSIS

       #include <tcl.h>

       char *
       Tcl_GetCwd(interp, bufferPtr)

       int
       Tcl_Chdir(path)

ARGUMENTS

       Tcl_Interp *interp (in)              Interpreter in which to report an error, if any.

       Tcl_DString *bufferPtr (in/out)      This  dynamic  string  is  used  to store the current
                                            working directory.  At the time of the call it should
                                            be uninitialized or free.  The caller must eventually
                                            call Tcl_DStringFree to free up anything stored here.

       char *path (in)                      File path in UTF-8 format.

DESCRIPTION

       These procedures may  be  used  to  manipulate  the  current  working  directory  for  the
       application.   They  provide  C-level  access  to  the  same  functionality as the Tcl pwd
       command.

       Tcl_GetCwd returns a pointer to a string specifying the current directory, or NULL if  the
       current  directory could not be determined.  If NULL is returned, an error message is left
       in the interp's result.  Storage for the result string  is  allocated  in  bufferPtr;  the
       caller must call Tcl_DStringFree() when the result is no longer needed.  The format of the
       path is UTF-8.

       Tcl_Chdir changes the applications current working directory to  the  value  specified  in
       path.  The format of the passed in string must be UTF-8.  The function returns -1 on error
       or 0 on success.
