Build Status

I am deprecating this in favor of phine/lib-path.

A collection of file system related functions.


The library contains a collection of simple file system related functions:

  • canonical_path() - Returns the canonical file path.
  • is_absolute_path() - Check for an absolute path.
  • is_hidden_path() - Checks for a hidden path.


Add it to your list of Composer dependencies:

$ composer require herrera-io/file-system-functions=1.*



var_export(canonical_path('../../myDir')); // /var/lib/myDir
var_export(canonical_path('../../myDir')); // C:\\Projects\\myDir

var_export(is_absolute_path('../')); // false
var_export(is_absolute_path('C:\\Test\\Path')); // true

var_export(is_hidden_path('/path/to/.hidden')); // true
var_export(is_hidden_path('C:\\Path\\To\\Hidden.txt')); // true
