HI ,

I am calling a shell script from c++ using the


My problem is path.

On my local copy the path is different from the one another box

so my question is

IS their any way can we give the path without starting from the /home ....

the script  should run unrelated  to the path...

Here is what i am trying to do

i have an application

named xyz

in that applications i have c ++,shell ,sql in following folders


i am calling the shell script from C++ code using the

system (/home/xyz/Scode/

Is their any way can we make the above one runs good if the application xyz kept in /home/abcd

i know i need to pass the whole path as


to run .

but can we do this work independent of the path the where  apllication xyz kept.

i need an


PATH which works for both situations.

something like get the path before the xyz i.e where xyz is copied and keep the complete PATH in system


where X should be dynamically generated path where the xyz is copied.
