18 * Return the real path (i.e., absolute path, with symlinks resolved
19 * and extra slashes removed) equivalent to the specified path. (If
20 * you want an absolute path but don't mind links, use
21 * absolute_path().) The return value is a pointer to a static
22 * buffer.
23 *
24 * The input and all intermediate paths must be shorter than MAX_PATH.
25 * The directory part of path (i.e., everything up to the last
26 * dir_sep) must denote a valid, existing directory, but the last
27 * component need not exist. If die_on_error is set, then die with an
28 * informative error message if there is a problem. Otherwise, return
29 * NULL on errors (without generating any output).

31 * If path is our buffer, then return path, as it's already what the
32 * user wants.
