Dear Java Guru's,
I've been wracking my brain on this for a few days, and I'm sure there has to be a simple solution to this problem:
In my Java Mac application, I've got two paths to deal with - "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users" and "/Users". Now, I know these both point to the same folder but, is there any way to compare these two paths and determine their equivalence from my Java SE 1.6 application?
Thanks for the response baftos, you are absolutely right and that is exactly what I needed.
File.getCanonicalFile in the example above will return "/Users" for both which solves my problem.
