PetscGetRealPath

Get the path without symbolic links etc. and in absolute form.

Synopsis

PetscErrorCode  PetscGetRealPath(const char path[],char rpath[])
Not Collective

Input Parameter

path -path to resolve

Output Parameter

rpath -resolved path

Notes

rpath is assumed to be of length PETSC_MAX_PATH_LEN.

Systems that use the automounter often generate absolute paths of the form "/tmp_mnt....". However, the automounter will fail to mount this path if it is not already mounted, so we remove this from the head of the line. This may cause problems if, for some reason, /tmp_mnt is valid and not the result of the automounter.
