"I know where folder "x" is, and I know where folder "y" is, but I need to work out the relative path to get me from "x" to "y". How Can I do that?" - You can use the functions in this software to calculate that relative path for you.
  • Works with relative paths.
  • Works with absolute paths.
  • Works with browsing urls.

More details:

For example, "I want to get from "../content" to "test/products", what's the relative path to do that?"

or, "I want to get from "a:/b/c" to "a:/b/d/e", what's the relative path to do that?"

For "x" and "y" folders, you can specify the relative path to "x" and "y", or you can specify the absolute path of "x" and "y". You can even supply browsing urls for "x" and "y".

It also includes a test file where you can experiment with different options to make sure it will return the correct values for what you need to use it for.


Technical/Developer Information:
This is programmed in classic asp. It consists of a single file which you can include anywhere in your existing asp file(s) as a collection of library functions which you can then call from any of your asps which have the file included in its list of includes. No special server software is required; it's simple/classic asp; if your site can run asp files, then this will work.

Examples of situations where you might find it useful are things like:
1) Relative links in asp pages
For example, you've got a generic asp template file, and you want to code-up links within the file which point somewhere specific. You can use the functions to work out what the path is from where you currently are, to the file that you want to link to, and then use that in the link.
2) Creating "static" pages via asp.
This is where you've got a program which creates asp files (eg content files from content data), and you want to write include lines to that file which point to the right area, eg to add an include for: "../../mylib_inc.asp" where the ".." part of the path is calculated taking account of where you're creating the file from and where the file will be run from.
