Is File.expand_path(filename) what you're looking for?

Jagan did you ever manage to work this out? I need to do the same thing


Don't want to revive a 5 year old thread. But for those who came here looking for answers, this is how I got it:

require 'pathname' filepath = some_valid_path

The thing to note is that realpath expects the file to exist.
