Computer science: when a relative path stops working

Self-tutoring about computer science: the tutor shares a recent discovery.

I’ve been using a directory structure in a new context that doesn’t seem to recognize relative paths. For instance, let’s imagine the directory structure

From dir3, the link

./the_file.txt

used to lead to the_file.txt. Yet now, it doesn’t.

So now, /dir0/dir3/the_file.txt is needed to access the_file.txt in dir3.

HTH:)

Windows: file permissions: what does Bypass Traverse Checking mean?

Researching file permissions can mean self-tutoring. The tutor relays the idea of Bypass Traverse Checking.

Bypass Traverse Checking (file permission)

This permission allows a user to access a specific file that is not protected, but which resides in a folder the user does not have clearance to examine.

Under the Bypass Traverse Checking permission, the user can navigate to that specific file by its full path designation, without the operating system checking the user’s clearance regarding the containing folder. However, without the necessary clearance, the user cannot simply enter the folder.
