Yes I know how pathing works in unix (and linux) and windows.

There are only two terms that I know. So if you know of another please provide the term and definition.
- Partial path.
- Full path.

Are you claiming that the first forward slash on a windows file path only means a 'partial path' but on unix/linux it always means a 'full path'?


On linux/unix the path might have a path that resolves to a different drive.

Otherwise, just like windows, it resolves to the current drive.

Thus it is in deemed a 'full path' on windows and unix/linux.

In terms of this forum which would be relevant for C/C++ include file paths...

A partial path in an include path on both types of OS will use the rules associated with the build process to resolve the path. That can either be because it defined a 'current' directory or it will resolve to the execution directory (or some variant.)

A full path (forward slash) in an include path on both types of OS will end up using the current drive excepting of course unless there is a path resolution to a different drive for linux/unix.
