Tcl_TranslateFileName(3)    Tcl Library Procedures    Tcl_TranslateFileName(3)


       Tcl_TranslateFileName  -	 convert  file name to native form and replace
       tilde with home directory

       #include <tcl.h>

       char *
       Tcl_TranslateFileName(interp, name, bufferPtr)

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

       CONST char    *name	  (in)	    File  name, which may start with a

       Tcl_DString   *bufferPtr	  (in/out)  If needed, this dynamic string  is
					    used  to  store the new file name.
					    At the time of the call it	should
					    be	uninitialized  or  free.   The
					    caller   must   eventually	  call
					    Tcl_DStringFree  to	 free  up any‐
					    thing stored here.

       This utility procedure translates a file name to a  form	 suitable  for
       passing	to the local operating system.	It converts network names into
       native form and does tilde substitution.

       If Tcl_TranslateFileName has to do tilde substitution or translate  the
       name  then  it  uses  the  dynamic string at *bufferPtr to hold the new
       string it generates.  After Tcl_TranslateFileName  returns  a  non-NULL
       result,	the  caller must eventually invoke Tcl_DStringFree to free any
       information placed in *bufferPtr.  The caller need not know whether  or
       not Tcl_TranslateFileName actually used the string;  Tcl_TranslateFile‐
       Name initializes *bufferPtr even if it doesn't use it, so the  call  to
       Tcl_DStringFree will be safe in either case.

       If  an  error occurs (e.g. because there was no user by the given name)
       then NULL is returned and an error message will be left in  the	inter‐
       preter's result.	 When an error occurs, Tcl_TranslateFileName frees the
       dynamic string itself so that the caller need not call Tcl_DStringFree.

       The caller is responsible for making sure that the interpreter's result
       has its default empty value when Tcl_TranslateFileName is invoked.
