Use of absolute paths


The system files must be referenced through absolute paths.


An absolute path provides the complete and unambiguous location of a file or directory from the root of the file system. These paths eliminate ambiguity that may arise with relative paths, especially in situations where the current working directory may vary. In other words, this practice of using absolute paths enhances clarity, predictability, and consistency in file referencing within a code.
